UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Penn State's quarterback derby has been reduced from four to three.
Surprisingly, the odd man out is true freshman Paul Jones from Sto-Rox High School.
The coaching staff informed Jones Wednesday that they intend to redshirt him this season, a source told The Post-Gazette.
The three remaining candidates for the Nittany Lions' starting quarterback job include sophomore Kevin Newsome, redshirt sophomore Matt McGloin and true freshman Robert Bolden.
Penn State opens its season Sept. 4 against Youngstown State at Beaver Stadium.
