  Draft Scout by Conference

  It doesn't matter whether Penn State linebacker Jesse Luketa is in the weight room, the film room or on the field. The same seven words are always running through his mind. How are you going to be remembered? "It's been ingrained into my head," the projected first-year starter said Thursday during an online news conference with reporters. "It doesn't matter if it's our individual periods or competition periods or team periods, it's the same mindset. It keeps me hungry, so I keep that little chip on my shoulder." For now, Luketa realizes he's best remembered as the replacement to Micah Parsons, the Nittany Lions' former weakside linebacker who's a potential top-10 pick in the 2021 NFL draft.

Luketa doesn't much mind the comparisons - "I'm comfortable with it," he added - because that's not what drives him. Sure, Parsons was a potential Heisman candidate. And, yes, defensive coordinator Brent Pry said last year Parsons was among the nation's best. But Luketa isn't trying to be Micah Parsons; with a smile and a buttoned-up Penn State polo, he said he's simply trying to be "among the greats." He's trying to be remembered long after his playing days. "The only thing I'm concerned about moving forward is how people are going to remember Jesse Luketa," he said. "That's what wakes me up day in and day out." - Centre Times
