It’s back to the drawing board for Penn State Football at the wide receiver position in the transfer portal
Penn State Football had a less than stellar day on Wednesday with a pair of its transfer portal targets.
The Nittany Lions have tried to improve their wide receiver room in 2023 by using the transfer portal. While plenty of options have emerged, Penn State is yet to secure an enrollment from a wide receiver.
Devin Carter will play in Beaver Stadium Week 1
NC State transfer WR and Penn State commit Devin Carter will play in Beaver Stadium to start the 2023 season, but it will be for West Virginia. Carter flipped his commitment from the Nittany Lions to West Virginia on Wednesday night.
Carter, a 6-foot-4 redshirt senior, committed to Penn State Football just minutes after the Rose Bowl ended. Despite this commitment, Carter did not enroll when Penn State’s semester started on Monday, and he was not introduced as a new member of the team by the football program.
This move is somewhat shocking considering Penn State is expected to be a top 10 team heading into 2023 while West Virginia is in the middle of a rough rebuild.
Broden holds off Commitment
A possible replacement for Carter is Bowling Green transfer Tyrone Broden. Broden visited Penn State last week and then announced on Tuesday that he would make his commitment on Wednesday. The Nittany Lions had to feel good about their chances.
Then on Wednesday, the 6-foot-7 (listed) wide receiver announced that he was delaying his commitment and that his recruitment was still open. At first, that may have been looked at as good news for Penn State. Maybe Carter finally enrolled, but a few hours later we learned that was not the case.
Victory Bell Rings will update Penn State’s wide receiver transfer board on Friday.
