Penn State has reportedly lost some depth at the tight end position heading into the 2019 season.
According to 247Sports and Onward State, veteran tight end Jonathan Holland is no longer listed on the team’s roster for the upcoming season. He was on the roster during the spring, but did not participate or make an appearance in the Blue-White game in April.
Holland would have been a fifth-year senior for the Nittany Lions.
In 2018, Holland entered the season as the Week 1 starter at tight end for Penn State but was replaced early in the year by Pat Freiermuth. Holland ended the year with seven receptions for 114 yards in three games.
Freiermuth became a huge aspect of Penn State’s offense last season as a freshman. He ended the year as the team’s second-leading pass catcher with 368 yards on 26 receptions. He led the Lions with eight touchdown catches.
It is unknown whether or not Holland will be pursuing other opportunities or if his college career has come to an end on the field. Holland finished his Penn State career with 10 catches for 130 yards.
