It has been a busy month for the Penn State Nittany Lions, who are still hot on the recruiting trail this spring. On Wednesday night, the Penn State football team landed another great addition to the 2023 roster: Big Ten transfer running back Trey Potts of the Minnesota Golden Gophers is now a Nittany Lion.

Penn State football adds Big Ten transfer running back ahead of 2023 season

Trey Potts will be heading into his fifth season of action this fall after spending the past four years with the Minnesota Golden Gophers. Potts was one of Minnesota’s top running backs during his few seasons in Minneapolis, carrying the ball 232 times over the span of 22 games for 1,147 yards and ten touchdowns.

As a Big Ten transfer running back, Potts knows what it takes to play smashmouth football in the Big Ten and has already experienced the infamous Penn State football white out game during the Gophers’ 2022 loss in State College (45-17). He is also a proficient punt and kick returner and has good hands for a running back.

To make the deal sweeter for Penn State football fans, the Nittany Lions’ new Big Ten transfer running back is also a native of Pennsylvania — he is from the Williamsport Area, which sits around an hour east of State College, PA.

With spring ball starting to come to a close, Potts is an excellent addition to the 2023 Penn State football roster and should find himself a solid depth role as the Nittany Lions chase a Big Ten title and more this fall.
