Q&A: 2013 signee Kasey Gaines

Defensive back Kasey Gaines (Loganville, Ga./Grayson) committed to Penn State in September and signed with the Nittany Lions as the 10th pledge of the 2013 class.

The 5-foot-9, 165-pound prospect will enroll over the summer and compete at cornerback. He said he hasn't received a playbook, just a workout routine, but he's hoping to hit the ground running. He recently spoke with NittanyNation about his expectations for this season, the biggest adjustment on the field and moving more than 700 miles from home.

NittanyNation: I know you said that it hasn't really hit you that you'll be on campus in about three months. So does that mean you try not to look ahead and just focus on high school? Or do you think about suiting up inside Beaver Stadium a lot now?
