Transfer Portal Roundup: Week 11

Penn State football continued its disappointing season with a hard-fought loss against Michigan on Saturday. Outside of James Franklin’s current squad, many former Penn State football players were in action around college football as well.

Here’s a look at how some of the recent Nittany Lion transfers performed for their new respective teams.

Will Levis, QB Kentucky

Levis was up and down in Kentucky’s win over Vanderbilt, as he’s been unable to come close to his impressive performances in the first games of the season. He completed 63.6% of his passes for 177 yards, plus two touchdowns and an interception. Levis added six carries for 32 yards on the ground as the Wildcats took down the Commodores 34-17. 

Justin Shorter, WR Florida

Shorter has quietly emerged as Florida’s top receiver in recent weeks, and he’s been a bright spot on an underperforming team. He caught six passes for 93 yards, marking the third time he’s gone over 90 yards in his last four games. The Gators barely held off Samford but won 70-52 in the high-scoring affair. 

CJ Holmes, DB Kent State

Defensive back CJ Holmes was outstanding for Kent State in its matchup against Central Michigan. The redshirt senior recorded six solo tackles and 10 total, a new career-high, as the Golden Flashes fell short against the Chippewas 54-30.

Mac Hippenhammer, WR Miami (Ohio)

Mac Hippenhammer has slotted in as Miami’s No. 2 passing-catching option this season, and he logged another strong performance on Saturday. Hippenhammer hauled in four catches for 63 yards and a touchdown in the RedHawks’ 45-18 win over Buffalo. 

Daniel Joseph, DL NC State

Joseph rose to the occasion for No. 22 NC State in its matchup against a tough Wake Forest team. Joseph had a sack and four total tackles, including one for a loss. However, the Wolfpack fell to the No. 13 Demon Deacons 45-42.

Zack Kuntz, TE Old Dominion

Kuntz hauled in five catches for 38 yards and even recorded a tackle in Old Dominion’s 30-16 win over Florida Atlantic.

John Petrishen, LB Pittsburgh

Petrishen was responsible for three total tackles, including two solo tackles, as Pitt survived an overtime thriller against North Carolina 30-23.
