Transfer Portal Roundup: Week Seven
Penn State is officially bowl-eligible after improving to 6-0 on the season.
The Nittany Lions took care of business on Saturday with a 63-0 demolition of UMass. Penn State will now set its sights on its clash with No. 3 Ohio State in Columbus next Saturday.
Across college football, once-Nittany Lions lined up with different jerseys after deciding to leave Penn State via the transfer portal. In case you missed it, here’s the weekly update on how some former Penn Staters performed this weekend.
Christian Veilleux, Pittsburgh
Christian Veilleux, who hasn’t started a game this year, got the call to lead his team against No. 14 Louisville on Saturday. The former Penn Stater went 12-for-26 in the air with 200 yards and two passing touchdowns. He also managed to run for another 17 yards on four carries.
Veilleux took his chance and ran with it as the Panthers upset the previously undefeated Cardinals 38-21.
Storm Duck, Louisville
Storm Duck was only on the Penn State roster for four months, making his only appearance in the 2023 Blue-White Game before transferring to Louisville.
Duck, who was on the other side of the upset against unranked Pitt, managed to record six tackles and one pass defended at his defensive back position on Saturday.
Daniel George, Akron
Daniel George, a second-year wide receiver for Akron, has been having a steady year with the Zips, tallying 21 catches for 188 yards receiving before Saturday’s contest.
George had three receptions for 36 yards in Akron’s 17-10 loss to Central Michigan on Saturday. He has yet to find the end zone but remains a steady target.
Noah Cain, LSU
Noah Cain, who transferred from Penn State to LSU in the winter of 2022, has had a lackluster year so far with the Tigers. The running back only touched the ball one time for one yard in this week’s rout of Auburn.
So far, he has 15 carries for 53 yards and two rushing touchdowns for LSU. He’ll aim to get back on pace to repeat his 409-yard, 10-touchdown stat line from last year.
Devyn Ford, Notre Dame
Devyn Ford, a highly rated high school running back out of Virginia, has had a rough time finding a consistent role in the college scene. Ford transferred to Notre Dame in May after four seasons with the Nittany Lions.
The running back only recorded one catch for one yard in Notre Dame’s upset of No. 10 USC. In total, he has four carries for 14 yards on the ground along with three catches for 22 yards receiving this year.
