Transfer Portal Roundup: Week Six

No. 10 Penn State football had a much-needed bye week after starting the season 5-0 and took the time to prep for its tough upcoming game at the Big House against the Michigan Wolverines.

While some also had their byes, some former Penn Staters set new career-highs for their respective teams. Here’s a look at how some Nittany Lion transfers fared during this week’s college football action.

Daniel George, Akron

It was a career week for Akron wide receiver Daniel George, as the senior from Fort Washington recorded his first career 100-yard receiving game against the Ohio Bobcats.

George caught 11 receptions for a career-high 108 receiving yards, however, it wasn’t enough to beat the Bobcats, as the Zips were defeated 55-34.

Will Levis, Kentucky

Kentucky starting quarterback Will Levis missed the Wildcats’ game against South Carolina due to injury. Levis didn’t participate in warmups and was seen wearing a boot as he nursed a foot injury.

Levis’ team clearly missed his presence, eventually losing to South Carolina at home 24-14. The former Penn State backup continues to be widely speculated as a top first-round draft pick in next year’s class.

Noah Cain, LSU

The former Penn State running back didn’t provide on the ground for LSU, as Cain recorded his worst running game of the season. In a massive 40-13 blowout loss at home to No. 8 Tennessee, Cain had just one rush for five yards. Making up for the lack of run plays, Cain also grabbed three receptions for 31 receiving yards.

Tyler Rudolph, UMass

UMass cornerback Tyler Rudolph has continued to be a valuable asset on the Minutemen’s defense, as he put up solid defense numbers in week six.

The redshirt sophomore totaled five tackles in his team’s 42-24 loss to the Liberty Flames. This is the first time in his career he’s totaled five or more tackles in back-to-back weeks after he totaled nine in week five’s loss to Eastern Michigan.

Trent Gordon, Arkansas

Playing in his first college game in nearly a year, Trent Gordon tied a career-high in tackles in Arkansas’ 40-17 blowout loss to Mississippi State. Gordon totaled five tackles for the first time since he was a Nittany Lion playing Memphis in the 2019 Cotton Bowl.

Justin Shorter, Florida

Florida wide receiver Justin Shorter led his team in receiving despite picking up just 20 receiving yards on a lone catch. The Gators defeated SEC rival Missouri 24-17.

Mac Hippenhammer, Miami (OH)

Mac Hippenhammer also had a quiet game on Saturday, grabbing only one catch for five yards. Miami (Ohio) took a 27-24 win over Kent State.
