Penn State redshirt sophomore tight end Zack Kuntz has entered the transfer portal, according to Rivals. He is the eighth scholarship player for the Nittany Lions to enter the portal this offseason.

Kuntz was a 4-star recruit from Camp Hill High School in PA in 2018. He had a bunch of offers from power programs, including Alabama, Ohio State, LSU, Michigan, Oregon and Pitt, to name a few.
