Colgate Wide Receiver Jake Spencer Transfers To Penn State

Former Colgate wide receiver Jake Spencer officially plans to transfer to Penn State, according to a post on his Twitter account Monday evening.

Spencer is the second wide receiver added to the Penn State roster via the transfer portal this offseason. In December, Mitchell Tinsley transferred from Western Kentucky with a year of eligibility remaining.

At Colgate, Spencer saw most of his playing time with the special teams unit while serving as one of the primary kickoff returners. On 20 kickoffs, Spencer amassed 378 return yards.

Penn State’s newest transfer recorded his first career offensive stats during the 2021 season. Spencer caught three passes for 14 yards while also receiving two rushing attempts.

Transferring as a run-on, Spencer will initially see heavy competition in the wide receiver room, even with star Jahan Dotson’s departure for the NFL Draft and Daniel George’s recent exit into the NCAA Transfer Portal. Along with the aforementioned Tinsley, the Nittany Lions are set to welcome recent highly-touted signees, Kaden Saunders, Anthony Ivey, and Tyler Johnson next season. With established options like KeAndre Lambert-Smith, Parker Washington, and Malick Meiga returning, Penn State’s 2022 quarterback will have an ample set of hungry receivers to choose from.

Spencer will enter the Penn State program with three years of eligibility remaining.
