Penn State DT enters transfer portal

·2 min read

The final week of April is expected to be a busy one for transfer portal activity. With the deadline for players to notify their current schools of their desire to enter the transfer portal looming and spring football practices wrapping up around the country, there may not be a day that goes by without a flurry of transfer portal headlines. On Monday, one of those headlines came out of State College with news that defensive tackle Cole BRevard has placed his name in the transfer portal.

News of the Penn State defensive tackle entering the transfer portal comes just a couple of days after Penn State wrapped spring practices with the Blue-White Game on Saturday. Brevard did play in the game, recording one tackle in the official box score from the modified scrimmage.

Brevard appeared in one game last season, marking his only playing time in his two seasons in Happy Valley. Brevard was a former four-star recruit out of high school from Indiana. Brevard committed to Penn Stae’s Class of 2020 in April of 2019 and enrolled early in 2020.

Brevard’s departure is not too shocking considering the immediate outlook many are projecting for the defensive line in the fall for the 2022 season. PJ Mustipher will return as a healthy veteran and freshmen Zane Durant and Dani Dennis-Sutton are players expected to take on a role on the defensive line. Penn State has also added to the defensive line depth with the addition of Maryland transfer Demeioun Robinson. Penn State is also expected to have players like Coziah Izzard and D'Von Ellies contribute on the defensive line this fall, making for a crowded and deep rotation already.

Brevard redshirted the 2020 season but can make up that year thanks to the NCAA’s granting of a free year of eligibility for all student-athletes impacted by the 2020 pandemic’s wrath on the sports calendar. Brevard will have four years of eligibility at his disposal as a result with whatever new school he may end up transferring to.
