Penn State Football is once again taking to the transfer portal to help address some of the holes on the roster.
Penn State Football has extended offers to numerous players in the transfer portal, yet only one has committed to the Nittany Lions so far.
The one new addition is punter Riley Thompson, who is transferring in from FAU. His commitment seemingly came out of left field, but with punter Barney Amor moving on after the Rose Bowl, it’s not a bad idea by the staff.
While this is great, the Nittany Lions still have holes at other positions, most notably wide receiver.
Penn State has extended offers to numerous transfer wide outs. Some have found homes elsewhere, but the top three targets of Dante Cephas, Dont’e Thornton and Kaden Prather remain out there.
So, it’s not exactly like Penn State is striking out, it just seems like the guys the Nittany Lions are targeting are taking more time to make a decision than others around the country.
With that said, it would be nice to see Penn State football have some momentum in the transfer portal. So, when can we expect to see some movement for the Nittany Lions in the portal?
It’s unlikely that any major move is made this week. The staff is off to California for the Rose Bowl and the vast majority of their attention is on that. This also means there won’t be any visits this weekend, but with it being New Year’s Day this weekend, that was unlikely anyway.
Next week is when the dominoes may start to fall. Penn State starts its Spring semester on Jan. 9. That means any transfer who plans to attend their new school in the Spring would need to make a decision by the end of next week.
Some players in the portal may commit to a new school but stay at their current school until the end of the school year. In that case, a decision could be dragged all the way out to March or April.
Expect Penn State football to get some news- good or bad- next week.
