Cousins is a part of a line that averaged 225 rushing yards per game as well as 343 yards per game overall. He recorded unofficially over 50 pancake blocks last season playing on an offensive line playing guard last season when he had to fill in for Ramen Meola a two-year starter for the Trojans.
The main parties responsible for gaining this commitment was Penn State offensive line coach Phil Trautwein with heavy influence from offensive coordinator Mike Yurich, as well as run game coordinator/running backs coach JuJuan Seider who sees potential in the sophomore lineman who is sure to get stronger as he grows into his body.
We will keep track of what Cousins do in the final two years of his high school career and we are sure that it will be a fun experience for those who follow McDowell football, and the Nittany Lions staff and fans.
