One of the featured storylines of the 2023 Penn State football fall camp is the competition for the starting quarterback for the Nittany Lions this fall. That competition is between Drew Allar and Beau Pribula, both players enter their second year with the program and bring different dynamics to the offense. History says that a winner of this competition should be announced at some point this week, and that person will lead Penn State to a season full of hype and excitement. But now Allar has revealed in a recent interview what the Penn State QB competition with Pribula has been like internally.

Both Drew Allar and Beau Pribula enrolled early at the start of 2022. They trained together, learned together, and watched Sean Clifford lead the Nittany Lion game in and game out last season. Now, the two find themselves in a heated position battle determining who the starting quarterback will be for the Penn State football team this fall.

In a recent interview on Next Up with Adam Breneman, Drew Allar joined Breneman to give his insight on how fall camp has gone from his point of view. One of the more intriguing topics the two talk about is the surrounding QB competition between Allar and Pribula.

When speaking about Beau Pribula Allar said “Nothing but great things in the quarterback room as a whole. Obviously very competitive just because that’s how we are just naturally. But, definitely, we always bounce things off each other as far as ideas, like what we’re seeing if I’m in or if Beau’s in I’m asking him what did he see? Why did he throw that? Why did he make that check? But it’s just a lot of communication and then whoever is out there on the field at the time we are supporting because obviously we want to see the offense do well no matter who is in.”

It goes to show just how mature Allar is early in his career. He doesn’t show any arrogance that he’s better than anyone in the quarterback room, instead, he continues to want to absorb more information or help out the younger players. In order for Penn State to be successful this season they will need Allar and Pribula to be prepared each week as if they are both the starter so no one gets caught off guard in any situation the team may face this fall.
