Current, Former Penn State Football Players React To Tommy Stevens’ Transfer To Mississippi State

Tommy time is officially over in Happy Valley.

Former Penn State quarterback Tommy Stevens announced his decision to transfer to Mississippi State for his final season of eligibility on Friday. Stevens’ transfer also serves as a reunion of sorts, as he’ll play under former Penn State offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead in Starkville. The quarterback rushed for 388 yards and scored a total of eight touchdowns while Moorhead worked in Happy Valley during the 2016 and 2017 seasons.

Shortly after Stevens made his announcement, some of his old teammates expressed their congratulations and well-wishes on Twitter.

No words were necessary for Micah Parsons, who expressed his support for Stevens using two emojis.

Defensive tackle Antonio Shelton pretty much summed up what most Penn State fans are thinking right now. We’ve seen enough of Tommy Stevens over the past four years to know that lining up against him in a bowl game would be anything but easy for the Nittany Lion defense.

Another Penn State football transfer tweeted his support for Stevens, just as he did a month ago when news broke that No. 2 was entering the transfer portal. Juwan Johnson believes his former teammate is going to be a major threat to SEC defenses.

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Trace McSorley couldn’t help but celebrate the reunion of Tommy Stevens and Joe Moorhead. Leave it to the Penn State legend to post the winning tweet of the day.

Mike Gesicki seemed to get a good laugh from McSorley’s Step Brothers reference, noting that the band is, in fact, back together.

It’s clear that Penn Staters have no hard feelings toward Stevens as he takes his talents to the SEC for the upcoming football season.
