Penn State’s Ta’Quan Roberson Transfers To UConn

Former Penn State quarterback Ta’Quan Roberson has found a new home.

Roberson announced Tuesday via Twitter that he’s transferring to UConn with three years of eligibility remaining. He’ll join a program that won just a single game in 2021 and lost seven straight games to begin the season.

Roberson entered the transfer portal on December 13 just a few days after Sean Clifford announced he’s returning to Penn State for one more season. With Clifford and Christian Veilleux back for another year, plus Drew Allar and Beau Pribula entering the picture, Roberson would’ve been right in the middle of a crowded quarterback room if he opted to stay.

The signal-caller completed 11 of 29 passes for 85 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions during his Penn State career. His most extensive action came this season against Iowa when he relieved an injured Clifford in the second quarter. Roberson struggled, completing just 7 of 21 passes for 34 yards and two interceptions in what would be the last time he’d see the field as a Nittany Lion.

With Roberson’s departure, he’s the first quarterback to transfer away from the program since Will Levis left for Kentucky in February of last year. Prior to Levis, Micah Bowens was the last signal-caller to leave the program when he transferred to Oklahoma in January 2021.
