Penn State vs. UMass - 9/20/14

Wendy Laurent has made very good progress during his initial two seasons in the Penn State program, and he heads into preseason camp looking to challenge for the starting assignment at center. With the graduation of Ty Howle, the New Jersey product should join Angelo Mangiro as the primary challengers for the majority of the snaps as the anchor of the offensive line. Laurent earned the start at center for the victorious Blue squad in the 2014 spring game. The talented Laurent has good physical attributes and work-ethic. He saw action in five games in 2013 and helped the ground attack reach 200 yards on three occasions, including a season-high 289 yards against Purdue. A standout at The Hun School, Laurent is among 12 returning Nittany Lions on the roster from New Jersey.

2013 (Sophomore Season)
In his first season on the field, Laurent saw action in five games. He played against Eastern Michigan, Kent State, Minnesota, Purdue and Wisconsin. Laurent helped pave the way for three 200-yard rushing games for the Nittany Lions, including a season-best 289 yards in the victory over Purdue. He also played an instrumental role on the scout team offense.
