Penn State Cornerback Marquis Wilson Will Be Entering the Transfer Portal

On Monday, Penn State cornerback Marquis Wilson announced that he is entering the transfer portal with one year of eligibility.

Wilson (5-foot-11, 178 pounds) recorded 20 tackles (12 solo), two pass breakups, and forced a fumble last season for Penn State.

Wilson played behind Joey Porter Jr., Kalen King, and Daequan Hardy last season playing mostly in nickel and dime packages. He provided depth at a cornerback position that was arguably the best in the country.

Wilson recorded 56 tackles, forced four fumbles, and two interceptions during his time at Penn State, with both interceptions coming in his freshman year.

Wilson was a three-star recruit in the 2019 class as he was the number four player in Connecticut, the No. 41 cornerback, and the No. 407 player nationally.

Wilson was slated to compete with holdovers King and Hardy, along with former North Carolina cornerback and All-ACC cornerback Storm Duck for playing time. Penn State will also have incoming freshmen Lamont Payne and Zion Tracy coming on campus this Spring.

Wilson will provide any program with a veteran presence in the secondary and will at the very least provide depth at any power five programs, or will be an immediate impact on defense to a team in a Group of Five conferences.
