Report: Penn State Football’s Zack Kuntz Enters Transfer Portal

Penn State football tight end Zack Kuntz has entered the NCAA’s transfer portal, according to a report by 247Sports’ Sean Fitz Wednesday evening.

Kuntz has reportedly entered the portal as a graduate transfer after three seasons with the Nittany Lions.

Kuntz came to Happy Valley in 2018 as a four-star recruit from Camp Hill, Pennsylvania. The 6’7″ tight end appeared in 21 games during his three-year tenure as a Nittany Lion, totaling just three receptions for 21 yards.

Spending the majority of his time at Penn State as Pat Freiermuth’s backup, Kuntz played the majority of his snaps on special teams. When Freiermuth went down with an injury this past season, it was fellow tight ends Brenton Strange and Theo Johnson who saw an increase in playing time.

With Kuntz’s likely departure, Strange and Johnson are still slated to lead the tight end room next season, with players such as Tyler Warren, Tommy Friberg, and Grayson Kline providing depth.

Kuntz is one of many Penn State football players to enter the transfer portal so far this offseason. He joins Will Levis, CJ Thorpe, TJ Jones, and Antonio Shelton, among others.
