Penn State Football: Blue-White Scrimmage Final Score 77-65

The annual Blue-White scrimmage held at Beaver Stadium this afternoon marked the official start of the Bill O'Brien era in front of an estimated crowd of 60,000 Nittany Lion fans, as the defense won the game 77-65 under O'Brien's new scoring system.

Each of this season's potential starting quarterbacks all threw interceptions. Matt McGloin, the leading candidate for the starting quarterback job, was 6-of-13 with 105 yards, a touchdown and an interception. Rob Bolden was 7-of-14 for 78 yards and three INT's and Paul Jones was 6-of-15 with 113 yards, one touchdown and one pick.

Receiver turned running back, Bill Belton, finished with 50 yards and one touchdown on seven carries while wideout Allen Robinson had three catches for 87 yards.

Penn State Football Recruiting: 2013 Tackle Derwin Gray Will Visit For Blue-White Game

There are already enough story lines heading into the annual Penn State Spring football game to fill Beaver Stadium (and then some) but there will be an interesting one there also in the form of a potential recruit. According to multiple sources, the Nittany Lions will be hosting four-star tackle prospect Derwin Gray from Friendship Collegiate in Washington, D.C.. Here is SB Nation college football recruiting editor Bud Elliot on what Gray can bring to the table.

Gray really is not a great high school football player. He is, however, a big frame with impressive athleticism to match. But he doesn't dominate like one might expect from a player of his size and athleticism. Gray may be new to football, and if so, that could be an explanation. He'll need instruction from a coach who can instill both technique in toughness at the next level during his red-shirt and likely developmental years of 2013 and 2014.

Gray seems like a late-bloomer, but Penn State is not in a position where they can turn down guys who have as much physical talent as he does. Bringing him onto campus for an important event like the Spring Game could be an important turning point in his recruitment.
