Second Penn State QB hits transfer portal this offseason
Another Penn State quarterback has entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal.
Thursday night, Will Levis announced that he is exploring options outside of State College to continue his college football career. He is the second quarterback from Penn State to make that announcement this month. Two weeks ago, freshman quarterback Micah Bowens entered the transfer portal.
The news of Levis comes hours after Penn State linebacker and former 4-star prospect Lance Dixon also entered the portal.
Levis played in eight games during the 2020 season, completing 33-of-55 pass attempts for 421 yards and a touchdown. He also rushed for 260 yards and 3 scores on 82 carries.
However, Levis was still behind Sean Clifford on the depth chart. Head coach James Franklin said the quarterback competition would continue through spring and into the fall before the 2021 season and didn’t want to name a starter so early.

Levis was at Penn State for two seasons, seeing significant action each year. In 2019, the QB threw for 223 yards and 2 touchdowns with 2 interceptions while completing 28-of-47 passes. He also added 213 yards and 3 rushing touchdowns on 51 carries.
In his post on Twitter, Levis did not mention any potential landing spots to continue his college career. He will have three years of eligibility remaining, regardless of where he lands.
Penn State finished the 2020 season with a 4-5 record, despite B1G title aspirations. The Nittany Lions closed out with four-straight victories after an 0-5 start.
