One of the pleasant surprises of the 2013 season was the development and productivity of defensive end Carl Nassib. Playing in 10 games on defense and special teams, he made 11 solo stops, with 2.0 tackles for loss, a sack and a forced fumble. Nassib is recognized as one of the squad's most relentless workers and has gained 15 pounds in the strength and conditioning program since last season. The former Malvern Prep standout will be looking to solidify his role in the highly competitive defensive end rotation and on special teams when preseason camp begins. In his first career action as a Nittany Lion, he made two tackles, including a 17-yard TFL on a bobbled punt snap, in the 2013 season-opening win over Syracuse. Nassib comes from a strong football family as his older brother, Ryan, was a starting quarterback at Syracuse University and was selected in the 2013 NFL Draft; his cousin, Joe, is a cornerback on the Orange roster and his father, Gil, played at the University of Delaware. Nassib had a grade-point average above 3.00 after the spring semester and was named to the 2013 Academic All-Big Ten team. He is among 15 returning Nittany Lions from Eastern Pennsylvania.
