Transfer Portal Roundup: Week Four

Penn State rolled over Central Michigan this week to climb to 4-0 and was able to give playing time to some younger players in the process.

As the Nittany Lions downed the Chippewas in a crazy day of college football, you may have missed how some former Penn Staters fared this week. Let’s check in and see how some Nittany Lion transfers performed this weekend.

Will Levis, Kentucky

Kentucky football is back and cruising with the big fish in the SEC, and Will Levis is a big reason why. The dual-threat quarterback couldn’t be beaten at home against Northern Illinois, throwing four touchdowns in its 31-23 victory.

In addition to his contributions to the scoreboard, Levis also earned a 217.9 passer rating. The Wildcats will try to continue their breakout year against No. 14 Ole Miss next week.

Noah Cain, LSU

Cain had an impressive showing this week against New Mexico. He rushed for 94 yards on 11 carries, and he punched in two scores, with one of them coming on a 49-yard bulldozing of the Lobos’ secondary.

Through four games, Cain has already matched his touchdown total from last year at Penn State with four.

Zack Kuntz, Old Dominion

Junior tight end Zack Kuntz continues to be a reliable option for the Monarchs during their 2022 campaign. This week, Kuntz caught what ended up being the game-winning touchdown against Arkansas State. This is the second straight week the former Penn Stater scored a fourth-quarter touchdown.

While on track to be slightly behind his lofty 692-yard season from last year, Kuntz’s 12.8 yards per catch this year is the second-best mark among tight ends in the Sun Belt conference.

Mac Hippenhammer, Miami (OH)

Senior wide receiver Mac Hippenhammer continued his solid year for the Redhawks as they upset Northwestern on Saturday. Making only two receptions in the game, Hippenhammer made them count, as he found the end zone late in the first half to tie the game.

So far this season, Hippenhammer has totaled 17 catches for 219 yards and four touchdowns.

Justin Shorter, Florida

On a tough road trip to Knoxville, Justin Shorter had a productive outing. While not able to haul in any passes for points, the junior wideout racked up 155 receiving yards on seven catches.

Gators fans have mixed emotions about his performance, however, as he dropped a pass with seven seconds to go with the potential to get in the end zone. Still scoreless on the year, Shorter will no doubt be hunting for pay dirt in his next game against Eastern Washington.

Other Notables

  • Akron wide receiver Daniel George posted 93 yards on 11 receptions in the Zips’ loss to Liberty.
  • Defensive lineman Damion Barber troubled Troy with one sack and four tackles for Marshall.
