Penn State Football hosted the tallest wide receiver in the transfer portal Saturday.

Tyrone Broden Jr., a 6-foot 7 junior wide receiver from Bowling Green, is officially visiting State College this weekend. Broden Jr. caught 32 passes for 506 yards and seven touchdowns this season for Bowling Green before entering the portal after the season.


The Nittany Lions, who offered Broden Jr. on Wednesday, joined Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Syracuse, and Colorado, among others, who have offered Broden Jr. since he entered the portal.  James Franklin, Taylor Stubblefield, and Ty Howle also followed Broden Jr. on social media. Broden Jr. visited Oklahoma this week and will likely have plenty of suitors in the portal.
