Cothran stars at the Chesapeake Bowl North Selection camp
Cothran had offers from Kent State, Maryland, Rutgers, Syracuse, Temple and Virginia.
The 6-foot-5, 245 pound defensive end talked about why he picked Penn State. “Once I visited there I knew that’s where I wanted to go,” said Cothran. “I think Coach O’Brien is a great coach and I can’t wait to get there.”
Cothran talked about starting a new beginning at Penn State. “We want to start a new legacy at Penn State,” said Cothran. The whole thing going on there has nothing to do with us or our coaching staff.”
In 2011, Cothran had 40 tackles, four sacks, two forced fumbles and a blocked field goal.
His team finished with an overall record of 5-5 and this season they are looking to take the next step.
“This season I want to do everything I can to help us get to the playoffs this year,” said Cothran. “I want to enjoy my final season.”
