Kaytron Allen: ‘I think we got the best offensive line in the country’

Do the Penn State Nittany Lions have the best offensive line in the nation? Kaytron Allen sure thinks so.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Yesterday, some of the Nittany Lions’ standout players met with the media following Penn State’s spring practice ahead of the Blue-White game this weekend. Penn State running back Kaytron Allen had some incredibly high praise for the Nittany Lions’ revamped offensive line heading into the 2023 season. According to Penn State’s rising sophomore running back, no team in the nation has a better offensive line than Penn State football.

Running back Kaytron Allen praises Penn State offensive line

On Tuesday, ahead of Penn State’s Blue-White game this weekend, Kaytron Allen had some incredibly high praise for Penn State’s revamped 2023 offensive line. With standouts like Olu Fashanu returning and a few new faces stepping up, this year’s Penn State football offensive line might be the best we have seen in State College during the James Franklin era.

“It’s great having Olu [Fashanu] back,” Kaytron Allen told reporters on Tuesday when asked about his offensive line. “Even the whole O-line, like I said, I think we have the best O-line in the country.”

Nittany Lions will likely rely heavily on the run game

It is great to hear that the Penn State football offensive line is stepping up for several reasons — this fall, the Nittany Lions will have a dangerous offense on all fronts, though without proper blocking and pass protections, no amount of skill players can create yards and points.

A season ago, Penn State fans watched in awe as true freshmen Kaytron Allen and Nick Singleton helped carry the Nittany Lions to an 11-2 finish with a victory over No. 8 Utah in the Rose Bowl. This fall, with both backs entering their second season in the Blue and White, the expectations are even higher for the RB duo, and the nation will be watching for both backs to take the next step in their development.

With a fresh face at quarterback, Penn State football will likely run the ball quite a bit this fall in support of the passing game, meaning the offensive line will have plenty of chances to prove on the field what Kaytron Allen is already claiming: that the Nittany Lions’ offensive line is the best in college football.
