Christian Hackenberg: No Intention of Transferring

Christian Hackenberg told a television station in Charlottesville, VA that he has “no intention of transferring” and is looking forward to next season in a video package published today.

Of course, no one is expecting Hackenberg to transfer, but the assurance is nice after less-than-assuring remarks made by his father earlier this week.

“Right now we’ll sit tight, see how the school does and how quickly they move forward,” Erick Hackenberg said. “I’m not saying he will or won’t (return) and that sounds bad, but it’s neutral.”

Hackenberg is working out at home in Virginia this week and expect to return to Penn State on Friday.

“We’re getting ready to go as a team,” Hackenberg said this morning while working out with Athelite Factory. “We’re rallying the troops. We’ve got a big offseason ahead of us, and that’s our focus right now.”

“It’s kind of surreal,” Hackenberg said of his award-winning freshman year. “I really didn’t have any expectations, to be completely honest with you. I just came out there and just tried to learn the system, and be a game manager. And then the rest sort of took care of itself.”

Although Hackenberg doesn’t know who his head coach will be, he says the team is excited for what’s ahead.

“I know that they’re going to do a great job up there. And we’re really excited,” he said. “I know the team is excited. I’ve talked to a lot of the guys. And we’re excited for the future, and we’re excited to see what direction we’re headed in. And we’re ready to win football games next year.”
