Boston College’s Jill Jennings Transfers To Penn State Women’s Soccer

It looks like Erica Dambach has found her replacement for Frankie Tagliaferri next fall.

Former Boston College midfielder Jill Jennings will transfer to Penn State for her final season of eligibility.

She will most likely take a starting spot in the midfield, which should give the team some much-needed depth and experience. Attacking midfielder Tagliaferri announced last month that she will leave the Nittany Lions to play for Rutgers next fall.

“I couldn’t be more grateful for this opportunity to continue my collegiate soccer career at an exceptional program,” Jennings said in a statement. “I want to thank Coach Dambach, the entire staff, and team for welcoming me into this family. I have the utmost respect for what this program has built and I feel so blessed to be a part of it.”

Jennings, a native of Montclair, New Jersey, started in each of Boston College’s 14 matches this past season and assisted twice. In total, she scored one goal and recorded 10 assists through 72 matches with the Eagles.

Jennings isn’t the first player to move from Newtown to State College over the past few years. Current captain Sam Coffey, who will return for one more season next fall, also began her collegiate career at Boston College.
