Instant Impact: Five From the Big Ten

Scout takes a look at five mid-year enrollees in the Big Ten who could make an immediate impact...

Jashon Cornell- Ohio State.
Ohio State does not have many holes to fill, but defensive end is an area of need and there is an opening for Cornell, especially after incoming defensive end Dre’Mont Jones injured his need.

Alex Malzone- Michigan
Michigan needs a quarterback and freshman Malzone already impressed the coaching staff with his mental toughness, and a good spring means he will start in the fall.

Paris Palmer- Penn State
Penn State needs to upgrade its offensive line and lost left tackle Donovan Smith to the NFL, so junior college product Paris Palmer comes in to fill an immediate need.

Oseh-Lie Saine- Maryland
Maryland needs help on the defensive line, so it means Oseh-Lie Saine will get plenty of opportunity to make an impact in the spring to help fill out depth and even push for the starting spot.

Isaiah Johnson- Rutgers
Rutgers desperately needs help at linebacker, so it signed junior college product Isaiah Johnson, who can fit in at either weakside or middle linebacker.
