Transfer Portal Roundup: Week Three

Another week of Penn State football is in the books.

The Nittany Lions defeated Illinois 30-13 in its week-three matchup and are now gearing up for the White Out game against Iowa on Saturday, September 23.

While the blue and white were battling the Fighting Illini, here’s what some once-Nittany Lions did around the college football world this past Saturday.

Ta’Quan Roberson, UConn

Ta’Quan Roberson made his second career start for UConn after replacing senior quarterback Joe Fagnano, who sustained a season-ending shoulder injury last week against Georgia State. Roberson went 15-for-32 and registered 170 yards and a touchdown in the Huskies’ 24-17 loss to FIU.

Roberson, who lost the starting job last year due to an ACL injury, is expected to remain the starter for the Huskies.

Devyn Ford, Notre Dame

Devyn Ford, a former four-star running back and the No. 2-ranked recruit out of Virginia in 2019, according to 247Sports Composite rankings, has struggled to carve out a starting role in the college game.

Ford transferred to Notre Dame in May and registered just one reception for 12 yards in the Fighting Irish’s easy handling of Central Michigan.

Storm Duck, Louisville

Though he only suited up the Nittany Lions in the 2023 Blue-White Game, Storm Duck was a Penn Stater for about four months.

Duck tallied one solo tackle in Louisville’s 21-14 victory over Big Ten foe Indiana.

Noah Cain, LSU

Running back Noah Cain transferred from Happy Valley to Death Valley in January 2022 and has since solidified himself in the Tigers’ offense.

His stat lines decreased from the opening two weeks of play, though, and Cain rushed three times for 15 yards in LSU’s 41-14 blowout win over Mississippi State.

Marquis Wilson, Purdue

Marquis Wilson continues his consistent season for the Boilermakers. After Wilson recorded two tackles and two pass breakups against Virginia Tech last week, Wilson tallied two more solo tackles with one assist and a pass deflection in Purdue’s 35-20 loss to Syracuse.

Daniel George, Akron

The Akron Zips lost to Kentucky 35-3 on Saturday, but Daniel George hauled in six catches for 36 yards.

The 6’2″ senior receiver continues to post consistent numbers as George now has 12 receptions for 136 yards so far this season.
