It's August 19th, which means it's 11 days until the Nittany Lions kick off the 2014 football season in Dublin. Who else could we highlight but number 11 himself, redshirt sophomore tight end Brent Wilkerson!
Yet another product of the DMV, Wilkerson boasts exceptional talent that, unfortunately, couldn't be showcased in Bill O'Brien's tight end friendly offense last year. After redshirting his freshman year, Wilkerson suffered a back injury that sidelined him for the entire 2013 season. Back on the field with a new coach and new scheme, Wilkerson will have the opportunity to make an impact. With the recent knee injury to rising sophomore Adam Breneman, Wilkerson will have an even greater chance to shine. Welcome back, Brent!

You may wear 14 now, Matt, but you'll always be an 11 to us.
