Parker Cothren became part of the regular rotation during his redshirt freshman season in 2014, and showed flashes of what should amount to a fantastic career at Penn State. The Alabama native finished the season with 11 tackles to go along with 2.5 TFLs and a sack. He will once again be asked to head up the second unit of the defensive line, which did a tremendous job of maintaining Penn State's stout run defense while the starters took a well-earned breather.
Get used to the name Parker Cothren- we'll be hearing plenty of it during the next three season.
