The Nittany Lions recently added a great veteran to their 2023 roster amid spring ball and more. Following the commitment of Trey Potts — a four-year Big Ten veteran running back — earlier this week, let’s take a look at where the Penn State football transfer portal class currently ranks.

Trey Potts was a massive pick up for Penn State football

Trey Potts — a former three-star running back from eastern Pennsylvania — saw four seasons of action in the Big Ten with the Minnesota Golden Gophers from 2019-2022 before entering the transfer portal. Now, according to his announcement on Twitter earlier this week, Potts is coming home to play for his childhood favorite college football team.

Throughout his four seasons with the Gophers, Potts appeared in 22 games, carrying the football 232 times for 1,147 yards and ten touchdowns. He was also an occasional receiving target and saw several punt and kick returns with Minnesota.

In 2019, Potts was on the sidelines when Minnesota pulled off a massive upset over Penn State; in 2022, he was there when the Nittany Lions laid down a monumental beatdown on the Gophers in the infamous white-out game.

Now, he brings a much-needed veteran presence to Penn State’s running back room and will see action as the Nittany Lions’ RB3 this fall — before his commitment, Singleton and Allen appeared to be all that Penn State football had when it came to reliable running backs.

Where does the Nittany Lions’ portal class rank heading into 2023?

With the addition of Trey Potts, the Penn State football team now boasts six transfer portal commitments; all of the Nittany Lions’ new pickups have been crucial for depth reasons and more.

So far, Penn State has added three offensive skill players (one running back, two wide receivers), one defensive player (cornerback), and two special teams players (one kicker, one punter). Of the Nittany Lions’ six current commits, two are four-star transfers, three are three-star transfers, and one is a two-star (per 247 Sports).

According to On3, Penn State’s 2023 transfer portal class ranks 33rd in the nation and 7th in the Big Ten.
