Penn State Football is continuing its pursuit of players in the transfer portal
Penn State Football had another busy day in the transfer portal on Wednesday with targets coming off the board and new ones joining it.
The Nittany Lions currently have three transfer commits in punter Riley Thompson, cornerback Storm Duck and wide receiver Devin Carter. Penn State could probably use another wide receiver and some help at defensive tackle wouldn’t hurt either.
Let’s take a look at the latest portal news from Wednesday.
Prather to Big Ten East Foe
Penn State football will not have transfer wide receiver Kaden Prather on its roster, but it will share the field with him on Nov. 4 next season. The former West Virginia wide out has decided he will transfer to Maryland on Wednesday. It’s clear that Prather had intentions of returning home as he is from the state of Maryland. The 6-foot-4 wide out caught 52 passes for 501 yards and three touchdowns for West Virginia in 2022. He has two years of eligibility remaining.
New Offer out to Transfer Wide Receiver
With Prather off the board, Penn State is expanding its board when it comes to transfer wide receivers. The newest offer is Bowling Green transfer Tyrone Broden. Broden tweeted the offer from Penn State on Wednesday. Broden is a very intriguing target considering he is listed at 6-foot-7 but plays receiver, not tight end. This past year, Broden caught 32 passes for 506 yards and seven touchdowns. He has two years of eligibility remaining.
Penn State is trying to add height to its receiver room, as evident by the addition of the 6-foot-4 Carter. Broden would certainly add even more height to that group.
Old Friend in the Portal
Penn State football extended an offer to wide receiver Andrel Anthony back in the 2021 cycle, but he eventually picked Michigan. As a true freshman in 2021, Anthony had 12 catches for 248 yards and three touchdowns. His production declined in 2022 as he only caught seven passed for 80 yards and one touchdown. Anthony is from East Lansing, MI so it’s possible he returns home and plays for Michigan State. The Nittany Lions do seem to go after transfers that it has a relationship with from the player’s original recruitment, so Anthony could come into play.
