Portal bound: Redshirt freshman OL announces he's transferring from Penn State
Penn State’s offensive line will be losing some depth this offseason.
Redshirt freshman offensive lineman Justin Kopko has announced that he intends to transfer from Penn State. He was a member of the Nittany Lions football team for two seasons but did not see any game action.
Because of the NCAA’s blanket waiver for all fall student-athletes, Kopko will still have all four years of eligibility remaining at his next school. He did not indicate any specific transfer plans other than entering the NCAA portal.
“First and foremost I would like to thank Coach [James] Franklin and the whole Penn State staff for giving me an opportunity,” Kopko wrote. “At this time I would like to announce that I will be entering the transfer portal with 4 years of eligibility left.”

Kopko was an unranked member of the 2019 recruiting class and chose to walk on at Penn State. He had been considering Army, but decided to enroll at PSU, instead.
The Nittany Lions finished the 2020 season with a 4-5 record.
