The spring transfer window has now come to a close, with yesterday being the final day for new players to enter the transfer portal. While the Penn State football lineup for the fall opener against West Virginia is shaping up to look similar to the team that fans saw during the Blue/White game, there are still some areas of concern when it comes to depth at wide receiver and defensive tackle. The loss of All-ACC honorable mention corner, Storm Duck, may also raise some concerns at the cornerback position. However, the Nittany Lions are actively working to address these issues, as evidenced by their recent offer to Division II cornerback, Donovan Callis, who has shown promise on the field. Despite the challenges, Penn State football remains committed to building a strong and competitive team for the upcoming season.

A new Penn State football transfer portal target has emerged for the Nittany Lions

Penn State football has its eyes set on the prize with the recent transfer portal scholarship offer extended to Division II cornerback Donovan Callis. Callis, a senior cornerback and standout for the ECU Tigers, has an impressive track record with 27 games under his belt, where he recorded three interceptions, three tackles for loss, and 77 tackles.

Not to mention, he’s also forced three fumbles, recovered two, and defended 20 passes. While the transition from D2 to Penn State football may seem like a big leap, the Nittany Lions’ coaching staff is impressed with Callis’ skills and sees potential in him. As the team gears up for summer ball, locking down the roster with these last-minute portal additions will be crucial for their success.

Nittany Lions are still yet to address two biggest team needs

The transfer portal has been uneventful for Penn State football thus far, with no major additions in the positions of need highlighted by head coach James Franklin after the Blue/White spring game: wide receiver and defensive tackle. While the team has extended offers, no new players have committed yet. Despite this, the Nittany Lions still have time to address depth concerns, and some younger players, such as Omari Evans and Zane Durant, have been making strides during spring ball. As a result, it remains to be seen if Penn State will make any significant moves in the transfer portal going forward.
