Every week, NittanyNation will pose five questions to a recruit, player, alum or coach about all things Penn State.

This week's subject is Curtis Cothran, a three-star defensive end out of Newtown (Pa.) Council Rock North. The 6-foot-5, 240-pound senior committed in March and needed just several days to affirm his loyalty after the sanctions.

Despite double teams, Cothran has eight sacks through seven games this season. He's been to two PSU games so far this year, but he'll have to watch the OSU-PSU contest from home. A disappointed Cothran said he has a homecoming game that Saturday, so he would be cutting it too close if he left immediately afterward.
