Devlin to Delaware

As expected, former Penn State quarterback Pat Devlin committed to Delaware, a source close to Devlin told The Inquirer today. Devlin, along with his parents, Mark and Connie, visited the Newark campus this weekend and gave coach K.C. Keeler his pledge upon the conclusion of the visit. Devlin, a former high school all-American at Downingtown East, transferred out of the Penn State two weeks ago after a season as the backup to Daryll Clark.

As expected, former Penn State quarterback Pat Devlin committed to Delaware, a source close to Devlin told The Inquirer today.

Devlin, a former high school all-American at Downingtown East, transferred out of the Penn State two weeks ago after a season as the backup to Daryll Clark.

Because he's transferring to a Division I-AA school, Devlin will have two years of eligibility as opposed to just one had he moved to a Division I-A program. The sophomore is expected to be enrolled at Delaware by Jan. 5 and early enough to participate in spring practice. Check tomorrow's newspaper for more.
