Linebacker Troy Reeder And Cornerback Daquan Worley Transferring From Program

Penn State lost two rising redshirt sophomores Tuesday morning when it was reported that linebacker Troy Reeder and cornerback Daquan Worley were leaving the program, first reported by Sean Fitz of Lions247 and Bob Flounders of PennLive, respectively. Reeder will transfer to Delaware, where his father played and his younger brother Colby Reeder just committed to, while it’s still not known where Worley will end up.

After redshirting last year, Reeder saw his role increase as the season went on. He took over a starting spot when Nyeem Wartman-White was lost for the year in the season-opener, and ended up finishing fourth on the team with 67 tackles. Worley redshirted his first year as well, but saw little playing time this past season.

With Wartman-White, Brandon Bell, and Jason Cabinda all returning, Reeder wasn’t expected to be a starter next season, but would have seen a fair amount of playing time. Penn State’s linebacker depth wasn’t strong to start with, and the loss of an experienced player isn’t going to help matters. The Nittany Lions are set to bring in two linebackers — Cameron Brown and Shaka Toney — from the 2016 recruiting class, but both should be expected a redshirt season.

Worley wasn’t expected to start either, with returning starter Grant Haley supplemented by John Reid, who comes off of a solid freshman season.
