Ken Talley, a 4-star freshman via the 2022 recruiting class, has entered the transfer portal. Talley was a key piece to James Franklin’s class of 2022 at Penn State.

He confirmed his entry into the portal with an announcement on Twitter:

“First off I want to say thank you to Coach Franklin and the whole Penn State staff for giving me the opportunity to be a Nittany Lion,” wrote Talley. “I loved every second of it especially the love of the fans with that being said I am now in the Transfer Portal.”

Coming out of high school, Talley was regarded as the No. 9 player out of Pennsylvania and the No. 24 Edge prospect nationally by the 247 Sports Composite Rankings. Talley held Power 5 offers from a number of programs, including Florida, Michigan, Michigan State, Tennessee, Texas A&M and others coming out of high school.

It will be interesting to see where Talley winds up via the portal before even playing a snap of college football.
