Shows how out of touch you are with the realities of division 1 recruiting.

1) He may not leave. All the “transfer portal” does is allow other colleges and universities contact the player. That’s it. Hundreds of D1 athletes will enter the portal and elect to not transfer. Tommy Stevens entered the portal last year.

2) Lamont Wade was NOT recruited due to his stats against WPIAL opponents. He was heavily recruited due his performances at camps. In one camp his junior season (I’m thinking it was the Nike SPARQ camp), he was the highest rated cornerback in the country by his metrics and performance against the top WRs. That is what go him offers to every major program in the country.

3) Why has everyone found his career to be such a bust? It blows my mind. He is playing at a university that is one of the NINE programs in the country in the blue chip club (42+ players on the roster that were 4* or better rated). Playing time is difficult to come by at Penn State right now.  To expect to walk into that program and start from day 1, is naive.  The fact of the matter is he lettered as a true freshman and was 4th throughout the year in CB snaps. He made a position changed and was 4th in safety snaps along with playing gunner on the punt unit his sophomore campaign. To put this into perspective, McSorley at this point in his career had 0 starts and about 50 total snaps in his Penn State career.

The only thing with the transfer portal is, if you enter it your current school doesn't have to honor his scholarship if he chooses to return. So it's not without consequence.

Having said that, I'm sure PSU would take him back. But for future reference, entering the portal isn't a freebie to look around, per se.

I heard he’s transferring to Julliard to focus on his music career
