Villanova Football’s Kyle McCloskey Transferring To Play Basketball At Penn State

Penn State men’s basketball will add Villanova football’s Kyle McCloskey as a transfer, according to McCloskey’s latest social media posts.

For as long as I can remember I have been saying #WeAre, but I can finally say it for real now…I’m incredibly excited to announce that I will be continuing my academic and basketball career at Penn State University 🦁 🔵 ⚪ #ClimbWithUs

A post shared by Kyle McCloskey (@kylemcc10skey) on

McCloskey was a three-star quarterback prospect entering his freshman year at Villanova, but the Washington, PA native opted to make the switch to Happy Valley after one season with the Wildcats. In four games this season, McCloskey threw for three touchdowns and 242 yards.

While at Germantown Academy, McCloskey starred in both sports, throwing for 3,000 yards on the gridiron and scoring 1,000 points on the hardwood.

After a one year stay at Villanova, McCloskey is now the fourth person in his family to play for the Nittany Lions. His father Mike played football for Joe Paterno and eventually in the NFL for Philadelphia Eagles and Houston Oilers. His mother Mimi and his older sister Megan both ran track for Penn State.

After losing to Rider Friday, Pat Chambers’ Nittany Lions could likely use all the help they can get. The team will be back in action on December 30, when it takes on Coppin State University in its final non-conference clash of the season. Tip-off is at 7 p.m. at the Bryce Jordan Center.
