Transfer Portal Roundup: Week 10

Although Big Ten football returned just three weeks ago, an 0-3 start means Penn State’s season is all but done.

Although things are dreary in State College at the moment, some former Penn State stars flashed and impressed with their new squads this weekend.

Let’s take a look around the college football world and see how some other Nittany Lions performed.

Justin Shorter, University of Florida

After a slow start, Shorter may finally be putting it together this season. He caught his second touchdown in two weeks during Florida’s massive victory over rival Georgia Saturday.

Shorter’s touchdown came midway through the first quarter after Georgia blitzed the Gators with two early touchdowns. His score would be the catalyst for a comeback and massive 44-28 win.

Shorter still isn’t quarterback Kyle Trask’s top target, but some consistency in his performances could see that change. Florida now sits atop the SEC East and will play Arkansas next Saturday.

Zech McPhearson, Texas Tech

Texas Tech’s struggles remain, but McPhearson had another solid outing. McPhearson recorded five tackles and a pass defended versus during the Red Raiders’ 32-18 loss to TCU.

Texas Tech now sits at 2-5 on the season and second from the bottom of the Big 12. The Red Raiders could bounce back against Baylor on Saturday, which sits third from bottom in the conference with a 1-4 record.

DJ Brown, Louisiana Tech

LA Tech was set to play North Texas this weekend until a string of positive coronavirus cases among the UNT program forced the game to be canceled. Barring no other cancellations, Brown and the Bulldogs will play Rice on Saturday.

John Pretishen, Pitt

Petrishen wasn’t involved during Pitt’s game versus Florida State on Saturday. The Panthers did get a massive win though by a score of 41-17, though.

Pitt sits at 4-4 on the season, but a large part of that was due to Kenny Pickett’s injury. He’s back and the Panthers will aim to keep rolling versus Georgia Tech on Saturday.
