Penn State DL Shaka Toney reveals decision for 2021
Another member of Penn State’s team is deciding to move on to the NFL Draft.
On Monday, star defensive lineman Shaka Toney announced that he will not be back in 2021. That is not surprising as Toney has played four seasons for the Nittany Lions, but he will pass on the extra year of eligibility and enter the 2021 NFL Draft.
In a statement on Twitter, Toney said that his journey is complete:
