Harvard Offensive Lineman Spencer Rolland To Transfer To Penn State After 2021 Season

Penn State football secured the commitment of grad transfer Spencer Rolland Wednesday afternoon.

The offensive tackle plans to finish his senior year this fall and graduate from Harvard in May before transferring to Penn State to play for James Franklin and the Nittany Lions.

Rolland played in all 10 games for the Crimson in 2019 but did not play a single snap in 2020 due to the Ivy League’s canceled season. Before the season fell through, however, he received preseason All-Ivy League honors.

Rolland was once a two-star prospect, according to 247Sports. He checks in at a self-reported 6’6″, 295-pound mark and would likely play as a tackle.

Though he won’t be coming to Happy Valley for another year, Rolland’s arrival will be a solid addition to an offensive line that will likely need some veteran help moving forward. His commitment as a transfer, paired with a strong group of 2022 prospects, could take Penn State in a positive direction for the next couple of seasons.
