After getting home from their Rose Bowl victory, Penn State is trying to get even better through the transfer portal. According to Alex Rocco of the Daily Collegian, Penn State is hosting former Miami wide receiver Romello Brinson on an official visit.
Penn State is reportedly hosting former 4⭐️WR and Miami transfer Romello Brinson for an official visit.
He had 189 yards in two years with the Hurricanes

Brinson (6-foot-2, 185-pounds) was a four-star prospect out of Northwestern High School in Miami, Florida. He was the No. 22 player in Florida, the No. 25 wide receiver, and the No. 146 player nationally for the Class of 2021, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings.
Brinson has recorded 14 receptions for 189 yards and one touchdown in the two seasons that he was in Miami. Brinson made one start and played in only 199 snaps this past season under new head coach Mario Cristobal.
Brinson’s visit is very interesting because the head coach at the time when Brinson committed to Miami is current Penn State defensive coordinator Manny Diaz. He lost playing time to his classmates Jacolby George and Brashard Smith, and that led him to jump into the transfer portal.
What Brinson brings to the table would be his size at 6-foot-2, and his track speed which can be developed by wide receiver Taylor Stubblefield and he will have time to develop with three years of eligibility remaining.
