Transfer Portal Roundup: Week Two
We’re officially through a fortnight of college football, folks.
Penn State dominated Delaware 63-7 on Saturday and now will look toward its first away game of the season against Illinois.
Across college football, former Penn Staters suited up for their new teams after hitting the transfer portal and leaving Penn State. If you were too busy watching Penn State’s beatdown of Delaware, here’s how some of James Franklin’s former players fared.
Ta’Quan Roberson, UConn
After his season-ending injury last outing, Ta’Quan Roberson lost UConn’s starting quarterback spot to current senior Joe Fagnano.
Roberson didn’t see the field last week during UConn’s loss to NC State but saw significant game action this week when Fagnano exited the game early in the second quarter. Roberson struggled early after his entrance as the signal caller but found his rhythm later in the game to finish with 216 yards on 19 completions, albeit with a 63% completion rate. Georgia State still cruised to a 35-14 victory.
Noah Cain, LSU
Despite scoring a touchdown in the red zone last week during LSU’s loss to Florida State, Noah Cain only had four yards total on four carries. Cain was used a bit more by head coach Brian Kelly during LSU’s blowout 72-10 victory over Grambling State on Saturday. Cain was called on seven times during the win, racking up 33 yards and a touchdown.
Keyvone Lee, Mississippi State
After entering the transfer portal in January of 2023 and committing to Mississippi State in May, running back Keyvone Lee aimed to emerge from Kaytron Allen and Nick Singleton’s shadows. Unfortunately for Lee, he didn’t make his way up the depth chart during camp.
Lee didn’t see the field in week two but had one carry for four yards during Mississippi State’s week one win over Southeastern Louisiana.
Marquis Wilson, Purdue
Cornerback Marquis Wilson couldn’t match last week’s four-tackle performance in Purdue’s 24-17 victory over Virginia Tech. Wilson only recorded two tackles, both of which were assisted. Purdue now moves to 1-1 on the year after losing to Fresno State 39-35 last week.
Daniel George, Akron
Wide receiver Daniel George continued to be an important part of the Akron offense during their week two victory over Morgan State. Last week, George had three receptions for 60 yards, but 50 of those yards came on one play. George had a more consistent performance this week, catching three passes for 40 yards, the longest of which was good for 15 yards.
Devyn Ford, Notre Dame
Like fellow former running back Lee, Devyn Ford cannot seem to find his way into the Fighting Irish’s running back rotation.
Ford was called on once during Notre Dame’s victory over Navy and only managed one carry for three yards during the Irish’s win over Tennessee State.
