STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — On Tuesday, the Penn State football team held an open practice and media availability as the team does every week leading up to the Blue-White game on April 15th. There, Basic Blues Nation’s own Matt Thomas and Hannah Miller had a chance to speak with many standout Nittany Lions about the coming season, including Penn State wide receiver Malick Meiga, who broke down how the chemistry is with the QB room, Drew Allar’s development, and more.

Heading into the 2023 college football season, both Malick Meiga and Drew Allar have some large expectations. Penn State football is coming off of an incredible 11-2, Rose Bowl-winning season, though neither Meiga or Allar was a started on last year’s team, and both will be needed to step up if the Nittany Lions expect to build on their success. According to Meiga, Drew Allar is looking sharp in Penn State’s offense during spring ball.

“What’s different about Drew [Allar]? … a lot,” Meiga said. “He is a lot more confident out there [than he was a season ago] and he is making plays.”

Meiga, Allar, and others must build chemistry before the season to thrive when times get tough

Penn State wide receiver Malick Meiga and quarterback Drew Allar are just two of the names that make up a very talented Penn State football offense. Still, Meiga knows that the Nittany Lions must build chemistry before the season, and according to the Meiga himself, the team is bonding quite well so far.

“It’s going pretty good,” Penn State wide receiver Malick Meiga told the media when asked about the chemistry between the receivers and quarterbacks on a young Penn State football team. “We’re trying to build chemistry every day, we’ve been doing some extra work … before spring ball, 7 on 7, stuff like that. All that [extra work] helps a lot so you just gotta keep building chemistry with the quarterbacks, but it’s getting up there, and it’s going to be a fun year.”

Meiga followed up on his comments about QB chemistry by saying, “It’s a lot on the field; it’s a lot off the field too … playing the game with your quarterback, spending time together, I feel like that’s a big part of it too, you can’t just be playing on the field … that’s a big part of the relationship.”

As March comes to a close, the days are counting down until the Penn State football team — including Penn State wide receiver Malick Meiga and QB Drew Allar — take the field for the first time in months for the annual Blue-White game. As long as the relationship between the wideouts and quarterbacks continues to grow and flourish, the Nittany Lions’ offense will be in for some special moments this season.
