STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — The Nittany Lions are heading into a year full of massive expectations, especially on offense. This fall, Penn State football will have a starting QB not named Sean Clifford for the first time since 2018, a revamped offensive line, two elite running backs, and more. Frankly, heading into summer ball, the Nittany Lions only have two concerns: defensive tackle and wide receiver. Both rooms look solid on the surface, though they have some depth issues that must be addressed over the summer or via the transfer portal. Still, according to KeAndre Lambert-Smith, his Penn State football wideout room is unphased by outside noise right now.

Following Penn State’s Blue/White game a few days ago, Penn State football wideout KeAndre Lambert-Smith — the team’s clear-cut WR1 — spoke to the media about the coming season and more. There, KLS emphasized that his wide receiver room is staying focused on what is in front of them and not the noise surrounding depth concerns and more

“We definitely don’t look at it as pressure, I feel like we take that challenge head on,” Lambert-Smith said when asked about the team’s depth concerns at wideout right now. “We’ve got guys — I feel like myself — improving as a room, as a whole. But like I said, we don’t listen to too much outside, we’re going to continue to grind, work, push each other, and let the results take care of themselves.

“I just try my best to help the young guys out — I see myself, when I was younger, in them … I see myself in them, some of the stuff they do, and just try to correct them and try to keep them on the right path.”

Penn State football has some work to do with its wide receivers, though the room is developing fast under the guidance of KeAndre Lambert-Smith, and could become one of the best in the Big Ten by the time the fall opener rolls around. For now, the Penn State football wideout room is tuning out the noise and staying focused on getting better each day.
