Former Penn State Football Wide Receiver Cristian Driver Transfers To Minnesota

Former Penn State football wide receiver Cristian Driver announced his commitment to Minnesota Sunday evening. Driver entered the portal on December 5.

According to Driver’s Twitter account, he had five other offers from Iowa State, Oregon State, Utah, Colorado State, and UMass. The Golden Gophers appear to have given him an offer on December 23, per his account.

The Flower Mound, Texas, native came to Penn State as a cornerback before redshirting in 2022 and transitioning to wide receiver ahead of the 2023 season.

Driver was mainly used on special teams but recorded one reception for eight yards during the Nittany Lions’ matchup with Delaware. Driver appeared in four games for the blue and white this season.

Penn State’s wide receivers faced criticism toward the end of the year after the group struggled to create separation and establish a playmaker at the position. Driver wasn’t a feature in the rotation.

Driver, the son of former NFL wide receiver Donald Driver, will transfer to Minnesota with three years of eligibility remaining. He’ll face his former team on November 23, when Penn State makes the trip to Minneapolis.
