Penn State Kicker Alex Barbir To Transfer From Penn State

Penn State football kicker Alex Barbir will not suit up for the blue & white next season, according to Lions 24/7.

Barbir was granted a release from the program after backing up senior Tyler Davis this season. The Georgia native only saw the field on six different occasions this year, putting two of his kickoffs out of bounds.

Many projected that Barbir would take the starting role as a result of Tyler Davis’ departure from the team due to graduation, but now, it appears that class of 2018 recruit Jake Pinegar will assume kicking duties for next season. Walk-ons Carson Landis and Nick DeAngelis will also return to the program to give the Iowa native some competition for the starting job.

Penn State will cap off its 2017 season with a Fiesta Bowl appearance against No. 11 Washington later this month. Kick off is at 4 p.m. on December 30.

In the most upsetting turn of events, Mikey graduated from Penn State with a digital & print journalism degree in the spring of 2020. He covered Penn State football and served as an editor for Onward State from 2018 until his graduation. Mikey is from Bedminster, New Jersey, so naturally, he spends lots of time yelling about all the best things his home state has to offer. Mikey also loves to play golf, but he sucks at it because golf is really hard.
