Daniel George who was entering his fifth year of eligibility for the Penn State football program is entering the transfer portal.
George was a four-star recruit out of Oxon Hill Senior High School in Fort Washington, MD as recorded 18 catches for 285 yards and one touchdown during his time in Happy Valley. However, his lone touchdown went for a school-record 95 yards from a pass from Sean Clifford in a game against Akron.
George was overshadowed by fellow 2018 recruit Jahan Dotson throughout his career and was been passed over by KeAndre Lambert-Smith, Parker Washington, Jaden Dottin, and Malick Meiga in the past couple of seasons. Penn State also has Michell Tinsley coming in via the transfer portal from Western Kentucky. Not to mention incoming freshman Omari Evans and Jalen Saunders are early enrollees that are already on campus that the staff has high hopes for in the future.
The reasoning behind George entering the transfer portal is simply he probably wants his football career to go out on a better note than not recording a single offensive stat in his senior season and hopefully he does. He, Dotson, and Justin Shorter were the three blue-chip prospects in Penn State’s 2018 recruiting class. Dotson is preparing for the NFL draft and Shorter already transferred to Florida after the 2019 season.
