Some surprising news out of State College as talented defensive end Ken Talley has decided to enter the transfer portal before playing a single snap with Penn State. Talley has confirmed this news to Nittany Sports Now through a message on Twitter.

The 6-foot-2, 239-pound Talley was a 4-star recruit in Penn State’s Class of 2022. The native of Philadelphia and Northeast High School, collected 95 tackles (20 for loss) and 12 sacks, which earned him the 6A Public League MVP.

Before signing with Penn State, Talley had other offers from Michigan, Pitt, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Arizona State and Kentucky.

The two-time team captain is someone that’s capable of playing both defensive end positions because of his motor and ability to ability to get after the quarterback and also engage the blocker to stop the opposing running game. Talley is known as a high-effort player who will not take plays off.

247Sports, Rivals, On3 and ESPN all rated Talley a four-star recruit. 247, Rivals and ESPN all had him as a top ten overall player in Pennsylvania from his class, and On3 had him just shy at No. 11.

At this point, no reason has been given for this decision by Talley.

Nittany Sports Now has reached out to him for a comment.
