Penn State is reportedly losing a highly ranked player to the NCAA Transfer Portal.
Multiple national outlets, including 247Sports and Rivals, are reporting that safety Enzo Jennings has made the decision to leave the Penn State program.
Jennings was a 2020 4-star safety from Detroit, Michigan and was ranked as the No. 7 safety and the No. 135 overall prospect in the country. Before deciding on Penn State, Jennings held offers programs such as Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, Florida State, Florida, Miami, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Tennessee and West Virginia.
In two seasons with the Nittany Lions, Jennings appeared in just one game and will have four seasons of athletic eligibility remaining.
The departure of Jennings leaves Penn State very thin at the safety position for the 2022 season. Jennings and redshirt sophomore Tyler Rudolph have entered the transfer portal, while Jaquan Brisker is graduating. Redshirt senior Jonathan Sutherland and senior Ji’Ayir Brown have the option to return but haven’t made their plans public. As things stand now, junior Keaton Ellis and Jaylen Reed are the only remaining safeties returning.
