Three more Penn State players have entered the NCAA transfer portal , according to a Twitter post and a report from 247Sports on Tuesday.
Redshirt junior safety Ayron Monroe said on Twitter that he intends to transfer from Penn State after he graduates in May. A pair of redshirt sophomores, tight end Danny Dalton and offensive tackle Alex Gellerstedt, entered the transfer portal to examine their options, 247Sports reported.
It has been a busy week for Nittany Lions players making decisions about where they will play next season. Wide receiver Juwan Johnson (Glassboro High School), who graduated last month, announced last Friday he would transfer for his final season of eligibility.
Redshirt junior defensive back Zech McPhearson said Sunday on Twitter he will move on to another school after he graduates in May, the same plan as Monroe. Johnson, Monroe and McPhearson all will be eligible to play in 2019.
The 5-foot-11, 207-pound Monroe, of Largo, Md., played in 12 games in 2018, mostly on special teams
Dalton and Gellerstedt found themselves buried on the Lions’ depth chart for much of the 2018 season. Dalton played in just three games behind freshman All-America Pat Freiermuth and two other tight ends, Jonathan Holland and Nick Bowers, who combined for 13 catches.
Gellerstedt played in only one game.
Two other players, sophomore safety Lamont Wade and redshirt junior wide receiver Brandon Polk, reportedly have entered the NCAA transfer portal.
