Through the Wisconsin game, Posluszny has 106 tackles on the season. In five contests this year Posluszny has pulled down double-digit tackles, with his top performance against Northwestern with 22 takedowns.
His aggressive style of play and dominating performances have caused former players and national commentators alike sending accolades to the junior Nittany Lion. In fact Jack Ham, a college and pro Hall of Famer recently stated, "I truly believe he's the best linebacker ever to play at Penn State." An impressive compliment considering Penn State's nickname of Linebacker U.
Ham is not alone in his opinion of Posluszny. ESPN Gameday commentator Lee Corso called him the "best linebacker in the nation."
