Spring Football: News Faces to Watch at the Blue-White Game

Blue-White Game set for Saturday at noon on BTN

The Nittany Lions will have plenty of options amongst one of the nation's deepest and most talented tight end units in 2014. Returning from a back injury that kept him off the field last season, Brent Wilkerson has been a dedicated force in his rehabilitation and preparation to try and play a significant role on the offense this fall. An athlete with good size and speed, he made big strides on the field during spring practice and had one catch in the Blue-White game. A smooth route runner with strong hands, Wilkerson will join returnees Adam Breneman, Kyle Carter and Jesse James to form one of the most formidable tight end groups in the nation. A former first-team all-met selection at DeMatha Catholic High School, Wilkerson is the director of fundraising with Penn State's Uplifting Athletes chapter, which has raised more than $825,000 for kidney cancer patients, their families and research since the first Penn State Lift For Life was held in 2003. Wilkerson is one of seven returning Nittany Lions from Maryland.
