Penn State football appears to be a complete team right now, though one major hole that the Nittany Lions are going to look to fill is at wide receiver. In fact, following the team’s spring game, head coach James Franklin specifically pointed to wideout is being a transfer portal position of interest ahead of summer ball, though so far, the Nittany Lions are yet to fill the need with a commitment. On Saturday night, it was confirmed that Penn State has officially contacted MSU transfer wideout Keon Coleman, who is known to be one of the top offensive weapons on the market right now.

While it seems unlikely that Penn State football lands Keon Coleman, it would be huge for the program if James Franklin somehow pulls it off. Coleman was one of the top offensive weapons in the Big Ten last year and is an impressive basketball player as well; seeing as the Nittany Lions have a major need for wide receiver talent right now, Coleman could be exactly what the program needs ahead of the 2023 season.

Despite a season filled with question marks and disappointments for the Michigan State Spartans, Keon Coleman was a bright spot for the team’s fans. The Spartans had high expectations following their impressive 11-2 record in 2021 but fell short with an ugly 5-7 overall record, including embarrassing losses to Maryland, Indiana, and others — the Spartans fell to Penn State in Week 13 by a score of 35-16 in Beaver Stadium. With Coleman and Thorne leaving the team, the future does not look all that bright in East Lansing right now — if Mel Tucker has another losing season, it would be his third sub-.500 season in four years as head coach.

During Coleman’s time in East Lansing, he played in 22 games and started in 12, catching 65 passes for 848 yards and eight touchdowns. He was a key offensive weapon and a two-year letter-winner in football on Mel Tucker’s team. According to recent reports from On3’s Hayes Fawcett, a trusted name in the sport, James Franklin and his Penn State football coaching staff have officially contacted Coleman in the portal. Again, it feels unlikely that Coleman winds up in the Blue and White; however, it could be a great get for the Nittany Lions ahead of the 2023 season if they can pull it off.
