Coach Bill O'Brien Transcript from the Big Ten Spring Football Teleconference

The Nittany Lions will have plenty of well-established, and new, options for what will arguably be the nation's premier group of tight ends. Brent Wilkerson made his presence felt on the scout team last year and the redshirt freshman will look to continue his progress as the 2013 season unfolds. Wilkerson is a talented and swift athlete who presents another big and mobile target for the quarterbacks and should have an opportunity to see substantial playing time this year. He brings excellent work-ethic and attitude to the practice field and weight room and has a bright future. Wilkerson owned a cumulative grade-point average above 3.00 after the spring semester and is a potential Academic All-Big Ten candidate. A first-team all-met selection at DeMatha Catholic High School, Wilkerson is one of 12 returning Nittany Lions that hail from the state of Maryland.
