Former Penn State G Dallion Johnson Transferring to Florida Gulf Coast

Former Penn State guard Dallion Johnson, who entered the transfer portal last month, has found a new home; Florida Gulf Coast.

He tweeted the news late Wednesday afternoon.

Johnson announced his intent to enter the transfer portal hours before word got out that his head coach at Penn State, Micah Shrewsberry, was leaving for Notre Dame.

Now, Johnson will be playing for Penn State’s last full-time head coach before Shrewsberry and the man who recruited him to Penn State, Pat Chambers.

Chambers, who coached at Penn State from 2011 until his controversial resignation in the fall of 2020, went 17-15 in Chambers’s first season this past year, highlighted by an upset win over USC in the season opener. In Johnson, Chambers adds a player with multiple years of Power Six experience.

Johnson played at Penn State for three seasons, starting his career in the pandemic-themed 2020-21 campaign under interim coach Jim Ferry.

He then stuck around when Shrewsberry became the boss in 2021 and came off the bench of each of Shrewsberry’s two seasons. He ended his Penn State career averaging 2.6 points per game. The best performance of his career came in February 2022 on Senior Night at the Bryce Jordan Center.

Johnson scored a career-high 15 points on five three pointers, helping Penn State to a 67-60 win.

Johnson was one of five Penn State players to enter the transfer portal, the others being Kebba Njie— who was a regular starter for Penn State as a true freshman this past season,— Evan Mahaffey, Jameel Brown and Caleb Dorsey. Johnson and Dorsey have found homes, with Dorsey announcing his intent to play at William and Mary earlier this week. The rest are undecided and could theoretically stay at Penn State for the start of the Mile Rhoades era.
