Brandon Beachum will Redshirt 2010

Brandon Beachum Pregame
Brandon Beachum (#3) will redshirt the 2010 season.
Per Sean Fitz, a good move by the coaches...
"It has been decided that running back Brandon Beachum will take a redshirt this season, according to sources close to the situation."
I was really hoping to hear this news. Beachum is a great talent in the backfield, but has had some tough luck with the ACL tear last season. He showed that he's a power back all the way, able to break tackles, yet fast enough to make defenders miss.

With Royster gone next season, Penn State needs two backs that can pound the rock. Beachum and Curtis Dukes will be a fantastic duo to chose from. Combine one (or both) of them with a speedster like Stephfon Green or Silas Redd (who won't redshirt 2010, btw), and it's a regular thunder-and-lightening combo not seen since Curtis Enis and Aaron Harris--unless, of course, we get on this season in Royster and Green.

Anyway, good news. Let Beachum heal up to 100 percent. Then unleash hell on the Big Ten in 2011.
