Mac Hippenhammer wasn’t on Penn State’s spring football roster, and appeared to be setting his sights on playing baseball for the Nittany Lions, focusing solely on that sport moving forward. Now, however, the ex-wide receiver is exploring new options.

According to, Hippenhammer has entered his name in the NCAA transfer portal. It’s unclear whether he’s looking to play football, baseball or both at his next institution.

In two seasons with the football team, Hippenhammer appeared in 20 career games and totaled seven receptions for 118 yards and a touchdown. He also started in one game for the Nittany Lions.

On the diamond, Hippenhammer started in 35 of Penn State’s 39 games and held a .272 batting percentage, along with a .350 on-base percentage.

Entering his name in the NCAA transfer portal will allow Hippenhammer to speak with coaches from different colleges. If he so chooses, he will still be allowed to return to Penn State.
