Derrick Thomas heads into the season looking to give the Nittany Lion defensive backfield added depth and make a push for more game action. The battle for playing time at the cornerback positions will be fiercely competitive, with two seniors and a junior the most experienced returnees. The talented and instinctive Thomas should have an opportunity to earn steady playing time on defense and special teams. Thomas and fellow corner Stephon Morris were prep teammates at Eleanor Roosevelt HS. They are among nine returning Nittany Lions from Maryland.
