Penn State Football continues to pursue transfers even though the semester has started.
Penn State football continues to build a strong roster for 2023 through player retention and transfer portal additions.
The 2022-23 College Football season is officially over after Georgia crushed TCU 65-7 in the National Championship game on Monday night. Behind the back-to-back defending champion Dawgs, not many teams will have more hype going into the 2023 season than the Nittany Lions.
Penn State No. 7 in final AP Poll
Penn State Football ended the 2022-23 season with a 35-21 Rose Bowl victory over the Utah. The win capped off an 11-2 season for the Nittany Lions. The 11 wins were same number of wins Penn State had the last two seasons combined.
This strong season resulted in Penn State being ranked No. 7 in the final AP Poll of the season. This ranking comes after the Nittany Lions started the season unranked. Truly an impressive season.
Is Devin Carter a Nittany Lion or?
NC State transfer wide receiver Devin Carter committed to Penn State just minutes after the Rose Bowl win. The Nittany Lions could certainly use help at wide receiver with both Parker Washington and Mitchell Tinsley moving on. It looked as though Carter will be a part of the solution.
But is he still a part of the 2023 team?
With the Spring Semester starting this past Monday, Penn State’s official social media accounts tweeted images welcoming the new transfers who were enrolling. Walk on kicker Alex Felkins, punter Riley Thompson and cornerback Storm Duck all received welcomes from the Nittany Lions. Carter did not receive a welcome.
Moreover, Carter deleted his commitment post to Penn State on Twitter.
It’s hard to tell what’s really happening here.
Next Man Up
If Carter won’t be a Nittany Lion, Tyrone Broden might.
The Bowling Green transfer wide receiver tweeted on Tuesday night that he will make his commitment choice on Wednesday. The listed 6-foot-7 Broden took official visits to Penn State and Oklahoma before making this announcement.
Even though the semester has already started for Penn State, transfers can still enroll up to next Monday because of the add/drop period. So, this late commitment does not rule out the Nittany Lions.
Broden, who has two years of eligibility left, caught 32 passes for 506 yards and seven touchdowns this past season for Bowling Green. His height would certainly be a welcomed sight in the Penn State receiver room.
