State College, Pa. (WSYR-TV) – The younger brother of former record-setting Syracuse University quarterback Ryan Nassib will soon take to the college football field.
But it won’t be for the Orange. On Tuesday, Carl Nassib received a scholarship to play for Penn State.
On Saturday at MetLife Stadium, Carl will be on the opposite side of the field from his cousin, Joe Nassib, who is a reserve cornerback for SU.
Carl Nassib joined PSU as a walk-on prior to the 2011 season. He redshirted that year, and did not see the field in 2012. At 6-foot-6 and 243 pounds though, the coaching staff anticipates that the defensive end could see time in the Nittany Lions rotation, especially with their numbers thinned due to sanctions.
