Former Penn State quarterback TaQuan Roberson has found a new home.
Roberson, who entered the transfer portal around mid-December, has decided on the University of Connecticut as the place where he’ll continue his college football career. He announced this in a brief tweet sent early Tuesday afternoon.

Roberson came to been state with a four-star rating by 247Sports’s composite recruiting. In three seasons in State College– with 2020 being a redshirt year– Roberson appeared in four games, completing 11 passes in 29 attempts with a touchdown and two interceptions.
Unfortunately, most Penn State fans will likely remember him for his struggles at Iowa this season, when he had to replace an injured Sean Clifford. In 21 attempts, Roberson completed just seven passes and threw two interceptions, as Penn State couldn’t hold a 17-3 lead and lost 23-20.
The decision for Roberson to transfer comes as no surprise. Had he stayed at Penn State, he would have been in a crowded quarterback room. Even without Roberson, Penn State could have as many as four quarterbacks under scholarship, assuming soon-to0be sophomore Christian Veilleux doesn’t enter the transfer portal.
