Poz and Brown to Return in 2006

We already knew that Posluszny planned to return, now it's official that both Poz and All-American offensive tackle Levi Brown will return for their senior season in 2006. Posluszny, Penn State's first junior captain since the days of Steve Smear, will definitely be a captain again and Levi Brown is an early favorite to fill one of the other vacated spots. I would expect Penn State to go with three captains again with senior tailback Tony Hunt likely another top candidate.

While the return of Poz is obviously huge, I think the return of Levi Brown is even bigger. Had he not returned, Penn State would be breaking in an entirely new offensive line. With Brown back, the OL will have an All-American to anchor it as well as protect Morelli's blindside. Since Morelli doesn't have the same mobility as Michael Robinson, it will be important to keep him protected in the pocket.
