Quarterback Ta’Quan Roberson to Transfer From Penn State

The Penn State quarterback room is down one person following some news early Monday morning.

Redshirt sophomore Ta’Quan Roberson announced on Twitter that he has decided to transfer from the Penn State program.

“Thank you, Penn State University, for the countless, unforgettable memories, and lifelong relationships that were built these past 3 years. Thank you, Coach Franklin and staff, for believing and taking a chance on me. After much thought and consideration, my family and I have decided it is best that I enter my name in the transfer portal with 3 years of eligibility remaining.”

This news follows the news last week that starter Sean Clifford, currently a fifth year senior, will return for the 2022 season.

The news concerning Clifford coupled with the growth of freshman quarterback Christian Veilleux and the addition of incoming 2022 recruits Drew Allar and Beau Pribula, Roberson’s future with the program seemed limited.

Roberson arrived in Penn State’s Class of 2018 as a 247 Sports Composite 4-star recruit from DePaul Catholic High School in Wayne, New Jersey. He was considered a big get as he also held offers from Boston College, Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina, Ohio State, Rutgers, Syracuse, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest.

During his first couple seasons, Roberson received very limited action but was thrown into the spotlight this season when Clifford was injured in the Iowa game. Despite holding a 17-3 lead, Penn State ended up losing 23-20. Much of the focus was on Roberson as he finished 7 of 21 for 34 yards and two interceptions and seemed wildly underprepared for what could have been a big moment.

Roberson will have three seasons of athletic eligibility remaining.
