Shane Simmons decided he was done playing college football back in December, announcing he was entering the business world, then changed his mind last month and decided to give football one more try by entering the transfer portal.
Tuesday, Simmons announced where he will finish his college career — at Marshall.

Marshall is coached by former Penn State assistant coach Charles Huff, who is in his first year with the Thundering Herd.
Here is what Simmons wrote last month when announcing he was entering the transfer portal:
“I loved my time at Penn State and being a Nittany Lion. I thought that I was finished football and ready for the business world, but over the past few months I’ve done a lot of soul searching and realized that my love and passion for football is still there and my ultimate dream is still to play in the NFL. As much as I loved my time at Penn State, I’ve decided that I need to start this next chapter of my football life with a clean slate and have put my name in the transfer portal. I’m a proud Penn State alum and Letterman and Penn State will always be a part of who I am.”
From our story when Simmons announced he was done with football:
Simmons was a 4-star recruit in 2016 and spent five years with the PSU program. He wasn’t able to develop into a college star, but he was an important part of the program. He had a career day against Michigan State on senior day as he started and had seven tackles and 1.5 sacks.
