Will Levis To Transfer To Kentucky
Will Levis’ time in Happy Valley has officially come to a close.
Penn State football’s former dual-threat quarterback announced Friday afternoon that he’ll transfer to Kentucky. Levis entered the transfer portal just last week after spending his redshirt sophomore season primarily as Sean Clifford’s backup.
After appearing in several games in 2019 and even starting against Rutgers, Levis saw an increased role in Penn State’s offense this past season. The Madison, Connecticut native appeared in nearly all of the Nittany Lions’ contest and used his running ability often.
Levis saw most of his playing time over a two-week stretch in games against Nebraska and Iowa. He replaced a struggling Clifford against the Cornhuskers and earned a start against the Hawkeyes the following week. The 6’3″, 222-pound gunslinger threw for 219 yards in relief of Clifford, but struggled in his second-career start against the Hawkeyes.
Outside of those appearances, the athletic quarterback racked up three rushing touchdowns and 260 yards on the ground as part of the “Falcon Package” throughout the season.
Kentucky’s quarterback situation isn’t very clear as of now. Veteran signal-caller Terry Wilson has announced that he’ll transfer for his final season of eligibility, so Levis will likely get a chance to compete for a starting role.
With Levis to the SEC and Micah Bowens to Oklahoma, the Nittany Lions currently have just three scholarship quarterbacks on the roster in Clifford, Ta’Quan Roberson, and Christian Veilleux. Roberson has attempted just one pass in his Penn State career, while Veilleux just arrived in Happy Valley as a freshman early enrollee.
