Altoona could be seeing on of their own play on Sundays.

Penn State defensive tackle Kevin Givens announced on Instagram Wednesday he is declaring for the NFL Draff, the fourth Nittany Lion to do so.

“Kevin’s evolution and growth since arriving on campus is impressive. He came in as a high school outside linebacker and running back and transitioned to defensive end here and then moved to defensive tackle,” Franklin said. “His versatility was an asset for our team and we wish him nothing but success at the next level.”
 
Givens finished the season with 33 tackles, including 10.5 tackles for loss and 5.0 sacks. He also had one pass breakup and four quarterback hurries. He earned the Jim O’Hora Award in 2018 for the defensive player with exemplary conduct, loyalty, interest, attitude and improvement during spring practice.
