With the graduation of senior defensive tackles Jordan Hill and James Terry, spots in the interior line rotation will be up for grabs during training camp and into the season. Brian Gaia is ready to return to the field and prepared to be a significant factor in the D-Line competition. Gaia has made significant progress during his first year as a Nittany Lion and was a highly effective player working against the offensive line as a member of the Dirty Show during his redshirt season. A three-time all-state player in Maryland, he could emerge as a physical presence for the D-Line this season. He owned a grade-point average above a 3.0 after the spring semester. Gaia is one of 12 returning Nittany Lions from Maryland.
