Penn State CB Jeffrey Davis Jr. Enters Transfer Portal

Penn State reserve CB Jeffrey Davis Jr. officially entered his name in the transfer portal on the first day that FCS players were able to do so, as first reported by Audrey Snyder of the Athletic.

Davis appeared in only one game at CB in his two seasons at Penn State, playing in Penn State’s 46-10 win over Ohio Sept. 10 of this year.

Davis (6-feet, 170 pounds) was a three-star recruit out of Kingwood-Oxford High School in West Hartford, Connecticut.  He was the No. 4 player in Connecticut, the No. 39 cornerback overall and the No. 526 player in the class of 2021, according to 247Sports Composite Rankings.

Davis was buried on a depth chart that featured Joey Porter Jr., a First-Team All-Big Ten selection this past season, and Kalen King, who was Third-Team All-Big Ten. Additionally, Penn State’s secondary has Johnny Dixon, who filled in when Porter had appendicitis and figures to start in the Rose Bowl, along with Marquis Wilson, Daequan Hardy and Cam Miller.

All of these guys will be returning in 2023, except for Porter, who entered his name in the NFL Draft. Penn State will also have three-star commits Lamont Payne from Chartiers Valley High School (Bridgeville, Pennsylvania,) and Zion Tracy from St. Thomas More Prep School (Oakdale, Connecticut) coming from the 2023 recruiting cycle at cornerback, as well as four-star Elliott Washington II from Venice High School (Venice, Florida.)

Davis will have three years of eligibility remaining and joins quarterback Christian Veilleux, defensive lineman Rodney McGraw and offensive lineman Maleek McNiel as Penn State players in the portal on the first day of this cycle.
