With just 95 days until the start of Penn State football, we turn out focus to a player who has yet to play a snap for the Nittany Lions.
Cole Brevard came into Penn State as a four-star recruit out of Carmel, Indiana in the class of 2020. The defensive tackle was an extremely disruptive player in high school and projected as a three-technique at the next level.
As a freshman a year ago, he did not appear in a a game but was named the coaching staff’s developmental squad player of the week after Penn State’s win over Michigan State.
Fast forward a year and it appears Brevard is well in the fight to back up PJ Mustipher as the Nittany Lions’ three-tech. Brevard is list at 6-foot-3, 312 pounds and has more than enough burst to be disruptive in opposing backfields. If he’s able to play significant snaps for defensive line coach John Scott, it would go a long way toward reinforcing a unit that has plenty of questions around it heading into the new season,
