After losing both Chop Robinson and Adisa Issac to the NFL Draft, Penn State will see an additional change to its front seven before the 2024 season.

Junior Abdul Carter is now listed as a defensive end on the Nittany Lions roster after playing his first two seasons as a linebacker (Click for fellow CFD writer Kyle Golik's thoughts).

Carter earned first-team All-Big Ten honors after the 2023 season where he recorded 4.5 sacks and 48 tackles.

The Philadelphia native tied for second on the team in the sack category behind Issac.

Before making his collegiate debut in 2022, Carter was given the prestigious No. 11 becoming the first Penn State linebacker to dawn the number since Micah Parsons.

Carter did see some time lined up on the edge during the 2023 season, playing 93 snaps at that position under defensive coordinator Manny Diaz who since took the head coach position at Duke.

Now as former Indiana head coach Tom Allen takes over, Carter will look to adjust to a new position as the blue and white prepare for 2024.
