Former Penn State Offensive Lineman Jimmy Christ Transfers To Virginia

Former Penn State offensive lineman Jimmy Christ announced his commitment to Virginia in a Twitter post Thursday afternoon. The decision comes just four days after Christ entered the transfer portal.

Upon arriving in Charlottesville, Christ will have up to three years of eligibility remaining.

“I am very grateful for the opportunities I was given and the time each school spent on me,” Christ wrote. “I have decided to commit to the University of Virginia and am excited for the next chapter of my life.”

Christ entered the transfer portal one day after the Nittany Lions’ annual Blue-White scrimmage. During the spring game, Christ was one of just two non-quarterbacks to play on both teams.

Christ is the second Nittany Lion to find a new home this week, joining cornerback Marquis Wilson, who reportedly transferred to Purdue on Tuesday.

In his Penn State career, Christ only appeared in 11 games. Ten of those 11 appearances came during the 2022 season, though largely in a special teams and reserve role.
