Antonio Shelton To Transfer To Florida

Former Penn State football defensive lineman Antonio Shelton has decided to call the University of Florida home for his final season of college football next fall.

Shelton entered the transfer portal as a graduate transfer on December 23 after spending all of his undergraduate years with the Nittany Lions. He announced his decision on his Twitter Wednesday morning.

Shelton joined Penn State as a three-star recruit back in 2016. He made 20 starts over four seasons for the Nittany Lions, accumulating 51 tackles, 12.5 tackles for loss, and six sacks. His best season came in 2020, where he had 14 tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss, and six sacks in his seven starts.

Shelton joins Justin Shorter as former Penn Staters to transfer down to Gainsville. Shorter joined the Gators last offseason and put up some solid numbers with Heisman finalist Kyle Trask under center.

The Penn State defensive line seen some turnover so far this offseason. Judge Culpepper entered the transfer portal on December 23 and is still looking for a new home. The Nittany Lions still boast a plethora of talent on the defensive front, however, including the new additions from the transfer portal in the form of former Duke nose tackle Derrick Tangelo and former Temple defensive end Arnold Ebiketie.
