On Thursday, Connor was as diplomatic as he could be when the media came to him in shifts, each bringing at least one inquisitor who re-broached the subject [of an early departure].Sean Lee stepped in ably at outside linebacker this year and will return, but losing both Connor and Posluszny along with Penn State's two star defensive tackles would be a heavy blow. Sounds 50-50 at best for Penn State fans.
"Right now all of my thoughts are on Penn State, on the bowl," he said. "That (NFL) stuff is more for after Jan. 5. My full focus is on the bowl. I don't want to get caught up in that other stuff and get distracted. I'm in limbo right now. I'll weigh my options after the bowl game."
He later conceded that if he is projected as first-round draft choice, or at least a high second-round pick, it could persuade him to move on. The emphasis there should be on could. He didnt say it would.
