Penn State football transfer portal: Lions should target Big Ten defensive line transfer

Penn State football may have a new 2023 transfer portal target: a huge defensive lineman from Big Ten country.

Today, Nebraska defensive lineman Stephon Wynn — a former Alabama commit — entered the portal. Seeing as the defensive line is a significant 2023 Penn State football transfer portal position need, the Nittany Lions could have some interest in pursuing the massive 300+ pound defensive lineman, who was targeted by James Franklin’s staff as a recruit back in 2018.

The 2023 Penn State football transfer portal class is strong as it is, though, after the spring game, James Franklin claimed that his team still needs some help at defensive tackle and wide receiver. So far, the Nittany Lions are yet to hit on either of those needs via the portal, though with the addition of Big Ten transfer Stephon Wynn, that may change.

As a high school recruit, Wynn was a Penn State football target in the class of 2018. He was a 247 Sports Composite four-star defensive lineman and was ranked as a top-75 recruit in the nation at the time — he is a product of IMG Academy.

Despite initially committing to Alabama in 2017, Wynn decided to transfer to the Big Ten West to play for Scott Frost’s Nebraska Cornhuskers; after one season in Lincoln, Wynn is now back in the transfer portal.

During his one Big Ten football season, Stephon Wynn appeared in all 12 of Nebraska’s games, making 22 tackles, deflecting one pass, and recovering one fumble. His massive frame and physicality make him an ideal target for the Nittany Lions, who are looking to add some size before playing run-heavy teams like Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, and more.
