Penn State Football: Nittany Lions reach 85 scholarships with addition of AJ Lytton

Scholarship Chart: Penn State's 2021 Roster

A few other individual items to consider:

- We are indicating redshirts for the entirety of the true freshman class (and jucos) who did not see more than a few snaps during the 2020 season, though their eligibility will remain five years to play four.

- In other words, we are treating this as a completely normal "career advancement" in terms of eligibility, simply for the reason that an overwhelmingly small number of players will ultimately choose to spend six years in college football. There will undoubtedly be exceptions to this, but it should simply be noted that we do not anticipate in any manner this being the norm to emerge from this year's one-off.

- The NCAA has decided that the 85-man scholarship limit will be in effect for 2021. However, returning seniors won't count, so Jaquan Brisker and Tariq Castro-Fields will not count against Penn State's scholarship limit this season. Incoming seniors who transferred in - Derrick Tangelo, John Lovett and Eric Wilson - do count against Penn State's 85.
