Minnesota Running Back Trey Potts Transfers To Penn State Football

Former Minnesota running back Trey Potts announced Wednesday night that he is transferring to Penn State football.

The Williamsport, Pennsylvania, native has two years of eligibility remaining.

Potts spent the last four seasons playing for the Golden Gophers from 2019 to 2022 and entered the transfer portal on March 13.

Last season, Potts rushed for 471 yards and three touchdowns over 101 carries. His best season was in 2021 when he stepped in for an injured Mohamed Ibrahim and rushed for 552 yards and six touchdowns. He finishes his time in the Twin Cities with 1,195 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns over 239 carries.

While Potts isn’t expected to be the Nittany Lions’ starting running back, he provides the team with a much-needed veteran. The 5’11”, 200-pounder gives Penn State depth at a position that was thin behind Nick Singleton and Kaytron Allen. In the event one of them gets injured, Potts would be a viable option with a track record.

Potts joins Malik McClain, Dante Cephas, Storm Duck, and Riley Thompson as the fifth player to transfer to Penn State this offseason.
