Harvard senior offensive lineman Spencer Rolland had announced his intentions to transfer to Penn State in 2022 after earning his mechanical engineering degree next May, but the All-Ivy League lineman has decided to look for another home.
Rolland (6-foot-6, 285 pounds) committed to Penn State back in July, prior to an excellent senior season with the Crimson, but he re-entered the transfer portal Tuesday.
I have decommitted from Penn State and have re-entered my name into the transfer portal as an OT to complete my last two years of eligibility. https://t.co/6Ac6G66nNb

While Rolland would have provided a much-needed jolt to the Nittany Lions’ stagnant offensive line next season, the Lions will now need to look within the program or for another transfer portal target if Franklin and co. are looking to bolster offensive line depth.
Originally a two-star recruit out of Apple Valley High School in Saint Paul, Minnesota, Rolland will offer whichever school that lands him two added seasons of eligibility.
The Lions have commitments from 2022 four-star offensive tackle Drew Shelton, three-star JUCO offensive tackle JB Nelson, 2022 three-star offensive tackle Andre Roye and 2022 three-star offensive tackle Maleek McNeil.
