The opportunity allowed Chisholm to showcase his talents in front of NFL Scouts.
Chisholm now awaits his March 10th Pro Day. It will be a day for him to show his combine skills.

The basketbros are back after another undefeated week for Penn State shootyhoops. Tim Aydin, Bill DiFilippo and Eric Gibson are ready to discuss both of Pat Chambers' squad's wins last week: at home against Akron and on the road against Bucknell. Can the guys be even more complementary of D.J. Newbill than usual? Was the monster game Ross Travis had against Bucknell a sign of things to come? Since all three were in attendance, was there anything during the game against Bucknell that stood out that you normally wouldn't notice on TV? What should we expect during the upcoming week's slate of games, when PSU hosts Virginia Tech -- which is quietly a massive game -- and travels to Marshall? Get ready, get set and get excited, because the best damn Penn State basketball podcast on the Internet is back.
