The hometown hero is set to play as a true freshman for Penn State.
According to Penn State football coach James Franklin, cornerback Keaton Ellis is not expected to redshirt. He has a “green light” as the staff likes to put it – meaning he is ready to play right away.
Ellis enrolled early and competed in spring ball with Penn State after graduating early from State College Area High School.
