Trace McSorley executed a lot of things well during his first season as Penn State’s starting quarterback. The deep ball. The read option. A home run celebration.
He has one more area to add to the list: Twitter responses.
After Wisconsin linebacker T.J. Watt was selected 30th overall Thursday night in the first round of the NFL draft, one NFL analyst showed a highlight of Watt delivering a big hit on McSorley after he handed the ball off on a read option during the Big Ten Championship Game.
A Watt fan shared the clip and tagged McSorley, asking him if he was awake yet.

McSorley, at 2:20 a.m., responded in the best way possible. He reminded him who was still standing at the end of the game.
Wide awake ?? https://t.co/Krti1o5GUi

Even before McSorley’s tweet, Penn State fans were quick to remember a different play that Watt was involved in during that game.
