Questions still remain about where Wade will position with PSU Football

UNIVERSITY PARK — Lamont Wade gave the best possible answer when asked what position he prefers to play.

“Football,” he said. “I like to play football. That’s it.”

Wade came to Penn State as an elite cornerback recruit from Clairton, and he spent his true freshman season playing that position a year ago. But Wade is now a safety, or at least that’s where most expect him to play, although a final decision may not have been made yet.

The coaching staff moved Wade to safety in the spring, but defensive coordinator Brent Pry said after the Blue-White Game that there was still a question about his permanent home.

Pry gave a hint recently, though, that might have solved things.

“Lamont Wade is just a tough, explosive guy. The more reps he gets, the more he shows us at the safety position that it could be the right spot for him,” Pry said.

Wade said, “I love hitting guys,” so couple that with his explosiveness, and safety certainly sounds like a good fit.

“I have no idea.”
