Note: This version includes a clarification from a previous post.
Girard graduate Jordan Dudas is listed among four strong safeties on Penn State’s preseason depth chart. The initial depth chart lists all of the players in the program according to seniority and is not an indication of players’ ability, which was not made clear in the previous version of this post.
Dudas, a 6-foot, 208-pound junior, transferred to Penn State after his sophomore season at Bucknell. He sat out the 2013 season while practicing with the Nittany Lions and has two years of eligibility remaining.
Dudas, who will wear jersey No. 20, was listed at strong safety along with senior Adrian Amos, who has started all 24 games the past two seasons, sophomore Malik Golden and freshman Koa Farmer.
Meanwhile, Cathedral Prep graduate Billy Fessler, a freshman preferred walk-on, is listed among Penn State’s five quarterbacks, along with sophomore starter Christian Hackenberg, sophomore D.J. Crook, freshman Michael O’Connor and freshman Trace McSorley. Fessler will wear No. 16.
• Penn State players visited children at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital on Wednesday. In the photo gallery from the event, Dudas was pictured in the 12th photo wearing No. 20. -
