Former Penn State Offensive Tackle Anthony Whigan Transfers To Akron

Former Penn State offensive tackle Anthony Whigan is transferring to Akron after previously entering the NCAA transfer portal in January.

Whigan will join an Akron team helmed by former Penn State offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead. Moorhead stepped into the Zips’ head coaching position this past December.

The former Nittany Lion appeared in 21 games over his career. After playing in every game of the 2020 season, Whigan was relegated to a smaller role and saw the field in 10 out of 13 possible games. Most of Whigan’s snaps came in a special teams capacity.

Whigan committed to Penn State in August 2018 as a four-star recruit. He joined the team as a junior college transfer from Lackawanna College, which has been a hotbed of recruiting for the Nittany Lions in recent years. At the time of his recruitment, Whigan was the seventh-ranked junior college prospect in the country.

The departure of another offensive linemen comes at a fragile time for Penn State football. Depth issues for the offensive line have been well documented this offseason, even prompting a format change for the 2022 Blue-White Game.
