Veilleux, McGraw and McNeil Officially Enter the Transfer Portal

The transfer portal officially opened today, and with underclassmen now eligible to enter the portal and look for new homes, a couple of Penn State redshirt freshmen have jumped at the chance.

Quarterback Christian Veilleux and defensive end Rodney McGraw are officially entered into the transfer portal, with the intent to transfer to new schools next season.

Veilleux, a 6-foot-4, 200-pound quarterback from the Bullis School in Potomac, Maryland, played in five games over his two seasons at Penn State. He arrived as a three-star commit in the class of 2021.

He completed 23-of-35 passing attempts for 282 yards and three touchdowns — with a majority of that coming in a 235-yard, three-touchdown performance against Rutgers in 2021.

As a redshirt freshman, he has three seasons of eligibility remaining. With former five-star recruit Drew Allar ahead of him on the depth chart, Veilleux had no path to playing time.

McGraw, a 6-foot-5, 255-pound defensive end from Chicago, Illinois, dressed for five games this season at Penn State. A redshirt freshman himself, he will have three seasons of eligibility remaining.

He recorded this first tackle of his college career, an assisted tackle against Minnesota in October, but he also didn’t see a path to playing time in Happy Valley.

Maleek McNeil, a freshman offensive lineman from Brooklyn, New York who left the team in November, has also entered the transfer portal. He didn’t see the field during his short time in State College.

Veilleux, McGraw and McNeil will not be the last Penn State players to enter the transfer portal this cycle.
