2007 Season

The former all-state lineman at Milton Hershey HS missed the first four games with a broken foot and made his Penn State debut at Illinois.

Five days after making his debut as Santa Claus at the team's Christmas party, Koroma earned his first career in the Alamo Bowl against Texas A&M. He made a season-high three hits and helped the Lions hold the Aggies to just three points over the final 49 minutes of the game in the 24-17 win. The highlight of the regular-season came at Indiana, when Koroma recovered a fumble in the final minute to seal the important road win. Koroma recorded two tackles at Temple, with one stop each against Purdue and at Michigan State. He was on the field for 180 snaps, topped by 45 against the Aggies.
