Already dealing with the loss of Curtis Drake because of academic issues, Penn State’s secondary has once again taken another hit to its depth chart.
A school spokesperson confirmed to The Patriot-News that fellow cornerback Derrick Thomas has left the program for personal reasons. The move leaves the Nittany Lions painfully thin in the secondary as Thomas was expected to compete for one of the starting corner positions this fall.
Sophomore Adrian Amos should have control of that position given this most recent news.
Thomas appeared in 10 games last season, but did not make the trip to PSU’s TicketCity Bowl appearance against Houston.
