Transfer Portal Roundup: Week Four

While Penn State took the fourth week of play to move up the ranks to No. 4 in the country, some former Nittany Lions took the opportunity to also show out on the field with their new squads, too.

Across the board, it was a big week for former Penn State football players on the defensive side of the ball.

Will Levis, Kentucky

Although Levis didn’t put up any points for Kentucky this weekend himself, the Wildcats still came out on top and beat South Carolina 16-10. Levis had 102 passing yards and a 68% completion rate.

Zach Kuntz, Old Dominion

Kuntz put up six receptions and 45 yards with one touchdown in a close 35-34 loss to Buffalo. His touchdown came in a pivotal moment in the second quarter just 19 seconds before halftime.

Judge Culpepper, Toledo

In the win over Ball State 22-12, Culpepper totaled six tackles and half a sack. Toledo now sits in first place after winning its first conference game of the season.

Daniel Joseph, NC State

While it may not be one of the more exciting stats of the weekend, Jones put up two tackles in a huge upset over Clemson this weekend. This game acted as a big momentum shifter in the race for the top in the ACC, pushing NC State to the top for now.

Lance Dixon, West Virginia

Dixon managed to have six tackles in the loss to Oklahoma this weekend, getting half of his total tackles from last season in one game. Oklahoma scored on its final drive with 3:39 left in the game, resulting in a 16-13 win over West Virginia.

Shane Simmons, Marshall

In Marshall’s loss to Appalachian State, Simmons added five tackles, two of those being solo attempts, to his stat line. One of those tackles also resulted in a loss of yardage.

Justin Shorter, Florida

Shorter had three receptions for 54 yards in Saturday’s matchup against Tennessee. He averaged 18 yards per reception. Florida beat Tennessee 38-14, now bringing Florida’s record to 3-1 on the season.

John Petrishen, Pitt

Petrishen posted three sacks in Pitt’s matchup against New Hampshire on Saturday. Ultimately, it helped Pitt produce a dominant 77-7 win over New Hampshire.
