Penn State quarterback Sean Clifford will spend one more season in Happy Valley.

The redshirt senior announced on social media Friday that he will not enter the 2022 NFL Draft.

“… I will be returning to Penn State to play one more season in the Blue & White,” he tweeted, in part. “I could not pass up the chance to be with this family and play the game I love again. The opportunity to play alongside my brother, Liam, and the rest of my brothers on the team made this decision easy.”

The Nittany Lions started 5-0 this season before losing five of their next seven games. They will finish the season against No. 21 Arkansas (8-4) at the Outback Bowl on New Year’s Day in Tampa, Fla.

Clifford passed for 2,912 yards with 20 touchdowns and six interceptions in 12 games this season. His career totals from 2018-21 include 7,644 passing yards with 61 touchdowns and 22 picks.

Liam Clifford is a freshman wide receiver who took a redshirt year this season.
