Penn State Football Linebacker Jamari Buddin Enters Transfer Portal

Penn State football linebacker Jamari Buddin announced his decision to enter the NCAA transfer portal Thursday evening through social media.

“Being at Penn State has been nothing short of amazing,” Buddin wrote. “After reflecting on my time here at Penn State, it is in my best interest that I enter the transfer portal with three years of eligibility remaining.”

The 6’2″ redshirt freshman appeared in nine games this past season, totaling eight tackles and a fumble recovery. Coming out of high school, ESPN tabbed Buddin as the nation’s No. 40 outside linebacker and the ninth-best prospect in Michigan.

Prior to his departure, most of Buddin’s production came in the form of special teams work. With fellow linebackers Curtis Jacobs, Abdul Carter, and Tyler Elsdon leading the way at his position, the Michigan native never cracked to two-deep rotation in the center of Diaz’s unit.

Following Buddin’s decision to move on from Happy Valley, he joins former Penn State linebacker Cody Romano as the squad’s second transfer portal entrant at the position.
