WR Dont’e Thornton
Sticking with wide receivers, Penn State Football will likely add a second via the transfer portal if Parker Washington does in fact leave.
The likely option to take that second spot would be Oregon transfer Dont’e Thornton.
Thornton was a Penn State commit at one point before eventually decommitting and spending the last two seasons across the country at Oregon.
The 6-foot-5 Thornton caught 17 passes for 366 yards and a touchdown last year. That is an average of 21.5 yards per catch, an incredible number. Thornton’s size also makes him valuable as the Nittany Lions don’t have a lot of height among their current wide receiver corps.
Originally from Baltimore, Thornton could be looking to play closer to home, Penn State would certainly be an option then.
The fact that Thornton is so familiar with Penn State from his high school recruitment could help the Nittany Lions in a big way. He knows what the school is like and what it has to offer for him, the staff doesn’t have to do too much selling in this one.
As with Cephas, the chance to play with Allar has to be attractive for Thornton as well.
