Corey Bolds To Transfer From Penn State
Corey Bolds, a redshirt freshman defensive tackle, announced his intentions to transfer from Penn State via Twitter on Sunday.
Bolds played his high school football for New Jersey powerhouse Paramus Catholic before committing to the Nittany Lions on national signing day in 2017. The Paterson, NJ, native never saw the field for Penn State, using his redshirt year last season.
If Bolds elects to transfer to another Division I program, he’ll have to sit out the 2018 season due to NCAA rules and would have three years of eligibility left.
Bolds was stuck behind a handful of defensive tackles on Penn State’s depth chart, with the Nittany Lions recently welcoming true freshmen PJ Mustipher and Judge Culpepper to campus. Aeneas Hawkins will arrive at the end of this month with the rest of the 2018 recruiting class.
The 6-foot-3, 289-pound Bolds accumulated scholarship offers from Rutgers, Clemson, Georgia, Michigan, and Ohio State, among others, before picking the Nittany Lions. He was a three-star prospect and the 16th ranked recruit from New Jersey in 2017, according to 247Sports.
It’s currently unknown where Bolds will end up next. His departure from the program opens up a scholarship spot.
