Hackenberg enjoying UA opportunity

Much of the nation's top talent has been working hard on the practice fields for the Under Armour All-American Game. Penn State quarterback commitment Christian Hackenberg has looked strong all week in practice has been enjoying playing other top athletes.

"It's definitely been a good opportunity for me," Christian Hackenberg said.

"Just being able to not only get around these good coaches, but sort of get used to the speed that I'm going to see at the next level."

Hackenberg was voted top quarterback on the Black Team for the week by the FOX Sports NEXT team. He says getting to work with such great talent this week will help prepare him for his future at Penn State.

"Everybody (has impressed me). We're all really good players and I think it's really a good opportunity for me going in to college," he said.

There's been some speculation that Penn State Head Coach Bill O'Brien might leave the Penn State program for an NFL job, but Hackenberg says it's not something he's thinking about.

"I'm not too worried about it," he said.

"Last time we talked, he said he was sticking around. I'm going with his word because he's been true to me throughout the whole process."

The four-star quarterback says his commitment remains solid to Penn State and he has no plans to take any other visits.
