Report: Penn State Football Safety King Mack Enters Transfer Portal

Penn State football safety King Mack is entering the transfer portal, according to a report from 247Sports’ Matt Zenitz.

Mack, a second-year, appeared in all 13 games last season. He was primarily used on special teams but registered three total tackles and a quarterback hurry.

The 5’10,” 187-pounder from Miami, Florida, was a four-star recruit in high school, according to 247Sports. The St. Thomas Aquinas product was listed as 247Sports’ No. 86-ranked player nationally, the No. 18-ranked player in Florida, and the No. 6 safety in the Class of 2023.

Although Mack was unlikely to start over Jaylen Reed and Kevin Winston Jr., he had a clear path to playing time in 2025. His next landing spot is uncertain, but he was heavily recruited by other Big Ten schools including Iowa, Maryland, and Michigan State.
