Penn State Football Hosts Pair of Marquee Transfer Portal Visits

Coveted division II transfer portal offensive tackle Alan Herron confirmed via his Instagram that he is visiting Penn State Football this weekend.

Since entering the transfer portal November 16th, Herron has received offers from Syracuse, NC State, Maryland, Virginia Tech, Auburn, and Miami, among others.

247Sports ranks Herron as the No. 6 offensive tackle in the transfer portal at the moment, and Herron has no shortage of suitors lined up.

Herron, a sophomore, played for the Shorter University Hawks for the past two years before entering the transfer portal. He would have three years of eligibility remaining.

Herron is the second confirmed visitor this weekend, joining Indiana kick returner and athlete Jaylin Lucas.


All-American Jaylin Lucas Visits Penn State Football

Herron wasn’t the only top prospect visiting the Nittany Lions this weekend.

Last week, Penn State offered former Indiana All-American returner Jaylin Lucas from the transfer portal.

The dynamic returner, Lucas, is confirmed to be visiting Penn State this weekend, per his Instagram.

In two years at Indiana, Lucas recorded 546 rushing yards, four rushing touchdowns, 329 receiving yards, two receiving touchdowns, and a staggering 1,163 kick return yards and three kick return touchdowns.

Lucas averaged 5.2 yards per touch from scrimmage in 2023, both as a receiver and running back, and would make a versatile weapon in new Penn State offensive coordinator’s creative offense.

As a former three star athlete in the 2022 class, Lucas will have 2 years of eligibility remaining.
