Former Penn State players curious about recent slew of transfers
Penn State has been in the hunt for B1G championships each of the last three seasons. It’s just a few years removed from staking claim to a conference title and pushing for a spot in the College Football Playoff.
But since the end of the 2018 season — one in which the Nittany Lions finished a respectable 9-4 — there have been a slew of players announcing that they’ll be transferring from the program.
As of Thursday, 11 players had either announced they were transferring or entered their name into the NCAA transfer database. That’s in addition to the five players who declared for the NFL Draft early. So yeah, it’s been a bit of a confusing offseason.
A few former Penn State players want some answers.
Former receiver DaeSean Hamilton and ex-cornerback Stephon Morris both took Twitter on Thursday afternoon, curious about the recent state of Penn State football.
“Aye PSU football y’all straight??” Hamilton wrote on Twitter.
Morris followed by saying, “I want answers too.”
Aye PSU football y’all straight ?? Lol

There’s really been no explanation behind the mass amounts of departures from Happy Valley. The reasons vary by player obviously, but having so many in one season without a coaching change is a bit strange.
Hamilton and Morris probably won’t be the only former Penn State stars looking for answers. A lot of fans are probably curious about the situation, too.
We’ll have to keep an eye out and see if Hamilton or Morris receive any responses to their questions.
