Michigan @ Penn State 2nd Half

It's a challenge to crack the "Linebacker U." rotation as an underclassman, but redshirt freshman Gary Wooten Jr. should have an opportunity to do just that when training camp opens. A physical and athletic player, Wooten likely will enter camp as the top reserve to senior Glenn Carson at middle linebacker. The South Florida product has made excellent strides during his first year as a Nittany Lion and could see duty on special teams as well. Wooten owned a grade-point average above 3.00 after the spring semester and is a potential Academic All-Big Ten candidate.
