  • He made good strides on the scout team during his redshirt season in 2014, and he is primed to become an impact player for the Nittany Lions in 2015. Additionally, Thompkins has the tools to be a contributor as a special teams return man.

  • Thompkins and offensive tackle Paris Palmer are the two returning Nittany Lions from North Carolina.
