Penn State Football Recruiting

Western Kentucky WR Mitchell Tinsley projected to Penn State In “Crystal Ball”

With Jahan Dotson likely going in the first round of this spring’s NFL Draft, Penn State will be losing one of college football’s best wide receivers.


But with Parker Washington and KeAndre Lambert-Smith set to return and Malick Meiga possibly ready to move into a more significant role– not to mention touted incoming-freshman Kaden Saunders– there’s still potential for Penn State to have a quality receiver corp in 2022.

The Nittany Lions might be getting a significant boost from the transfer portal.

Mitchell Tinsley, fresh off 1,402 receiving yards, 87 catches and 14 touchdowns in his junior season at Western Kentucky, entered the transfer portal in early December. Both of 247 Sports’s Crystal Ball projections have Tinsley continuing his college football career at Penn State.

Trey Scott, 247 Sports’ College Editor, and Sean Fitz, the site’s Penn State insider, projected Tinsley to come to Penn State in their “Crystal Ball” predictions, revealed Christmas Eve.

Tinsley’s performance in 2021 earned him second-team All-Conference USA.
