EA College Football 25 drops next week for video game players all across the country. We previously learned where Penn State football ranked on offense, defense, and overall. Now, we know who the top-rated Nittany Lion players are.

Nittany Lion edge rusher Abdul Carter leads the way. He sports a 91 overall ranking and is at No. 47. Safety Kevin Winston Jr., is a 91 overall and ranks No. 57. And, junior running back Nicholas Singleton then, checks in at No. 64 and is also a No. 91 overall. And, Other players’ ratings who are outside of the top 100 could be revealed in the days ahead.

With a 94 speed rating, Singleton will be the seventh-fastest player in the game. He also is tied with eight other players with a jump rating of 90, and is listed at No. 3 in that grouping.

Carter’s 87 strength rating is third overall. He’s behind only Georgia outside linebacker Mykel Williams and West Virginia offensive lineman Wyatt Milum, who both have an 88 strength rating. Like Singleton, Carter will also have a high jump rating. At 89 in that department, he is inside the top 10 at No. 9 overall in that category.

By position, Singleton is the No. 5 overall running back. Winston Jr., is the No. 4 strong safety. And, Carter is the No. 2 right defensive end.

Penn State is a top 10 team in EA College Football 25

Penn State is a top-10 team in various preseason media polls and also Bill Connelly’s SP+ model at ESPN. The Nittany Lions are also among the teams with the shortest odds to both make the College Football Playoff and also to win it outright. So, it should go without saying that in the video game world, head coach James Franklin’s team is highly respected, too.

During its recent rankings week event, EA Sports’ development team ranked the Lions’ offense at No. 12 nationally with an 87 rating. It gave Tom Allen’s defense the No. 9 spot at 88 overall. Combined, that made Penn State the game’s ninth-best team with an 88 overall ranking. Additionally, Beaver Stadium checks in at No. 6 in the game’s “toughest places to play” rankings.

EA College Football 25 hits shelves and digital stores next week for pre-order customers. It will be available to all video game players who wish to purchase it on July 19.
