STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Linebacker-U doesn't have a starting middle linebacker nailed down just yet and don't look for Penn State to figure out that position battle until right before the season starts.
Among the candidates is Cam Brown, who was approached about moving to middle linebacker in the lead up to the Fiesta Bowl. It wasn't all that surprising given Penn State was losing mainstay 'Mike' linebacker Jason Cabinda to graduation and the other candidates lacked experience or in the case of Micah Parsons weren't even on campus yet.
"The position I've played most [this spring] is probably 'Mike.' A little bit of 'Sam' in between," Brown said Tuesday. "I'm pretty comfortable at 'Mike' right now. I've got to get a little more vocal in my calls and reassuring the defense on what the call is. Other than that, I feel really comfortable."
