Early-enrollee Thompkins impresses at PSU
UNIVERSITY PARK -- Penn State head coach James Franklin singled out early-enrollee freshman De'Andre Thompkins at his spring football press conference Monday.
Thompkins, who joined the Nittany Lions in January, is considered the fastest man on the Nittany Lions roster, according to Franklin.
"We all ran 40's [yard dashes], and he was the fastest," Franklin said.
Franklin added that Thompkins could see the field in his freshman season on special teams, but at only 6'0" and 170 pounds, Thompkins will need to maintain, and even gain weight and strength.
