Penn State offers another DE in the transfer portal; Lions add veteran assistant as offensive analyst, and more

Football headlines in Pennsylvania today are marked by a constant pursuit of defensive men in the NCAA transfer portal and a new hire of James Franklin’s off-court coaching staff.

This season, Penn State has made a veteran defensive end a priority for the coaching staff in this off-season, and the Lions made a bid this week to Georgia Tech D-end Jordan Domineck, Ryan Snyder wrote for Blue-White Illustrated. Penn State is also still looking for TCU’s Ochaun Mathis and UCLA’s Mitchell Agude after releasing Temple Arnold Ebiketie’s transfer into a career season as a move in 2021.

Penn State has added Frank Leonard as offensive analyst, according to a report by Sean Fitz of Lions247. Leonard is a well-traveled assistant who has had a number of assignments in college football and the NFL, most recently under Steve Adazio at Colorado State. He also worked with Phil Trautwin at Boston College and James Franklin during his time at Kansas, Fitz notes, and could add a veteran’s voice to an offense run through the second half of the season.
