PSU OL C.J. Thorpe enters transfer portal

Penn State offensive lineman C.J. Thorpe announced today that he’s entering the transfer portal, and he will do so as a defensive lineman. He started his PSU career on defense and apparently wants to finish his college career on that side of the ball.

Thorpe spent four years at Penn State, redshirting in 2017. He played defensive line in 2018 before switching to offensive line in 2019.

He appeared in six games this season, making three starts at right guard. He also started five games at that spot last season.

A product of Central Catholic High School in Pittsburgh, Thorpe was a legacy player at Penn State. His father, Chris, was a linebacker and fullback for the Lions from 1985-88.

Thorpe is the third Nittany Lion player to enter the transfer portal, joining DT Antonio Shelton (who chose Florida) and DT Judge Culpepper.
