Penn State Running Back Noah Cain Transfers To LSU

Former Penn State running back Noah Cain is heading down to LSU as a graduate transfer, he confirmed in a Twitter post Thursday night.

Cain, a Baton Rouge native, committed to the Tigers just hours after publicly confirming he’d entered the transfer portal. His departure from Penn State was first reported on Wednesday.

“Penn State has provided me with a myriad of opportunities athletically, academically, civically, and socially…,” Cain wrote in a statement. “With that said, after discussions with my family and seeking God’s guidance, I have entered the NCAA transfer portal.”

Once he heads down to the bayou, Cain will link up with an LSU team coming off of a 6-7 season, punctuated by a 42-20 loss to Kansas State in the Texas Bowl. The Tigers’ leading rusher, Tyrion Davis-Price, has already declared for the 2022 NFL Draft, potentially opening some room for Cain, who has two years of eligibility remaining.

Cain appeared in 23 games over his Penn State career and totaled 806 rushing yards and 12 rushing touchdowns on 193 carries. He also amassed 166 receiving yards on 26 career catches.

This season, Cain led Penn State’s underproductive running backs with four rushing touchdowns. He notably posted the team’s second-highest rushing total (350 yards) after missing nearly the entire 2020 season due to injury.

With Cain out of the picture, Penn State will likely rely on Keyvone Lee as its go-to starter. Lee racked up two rushing touchdowns and 530 rushing yards on 108 carries this season. Highly touted running back prospect Nicholas Singleton also figures to receive notable work once he joins the team.
