Penn State's offseason of attrition continues, as two defensive players will reportedly leave the program.

Another day, another handful of losses for Penn State football. In what may be one of the most surprising moves so far this offseason, 247 Sports announced that Troy Reeder is transferring to Delaware. Due to Delaware being an FCS school, Reeder is eligible to play immediately. Meanwhile, Bob Flounders reported that Daquan Worley will transfer. There is no word on where he is transferring.

Reeder saw a lot of playing time this season for Penn State, starting 11 games after Nyeem Wartman-White's season-ending injury forced him into action. He performed admirably, finishing fourth on the team with 67 tackles. The Delaware native also recorded 5.5 tackles for loss and an interception.

While the move itself is surprising, the destination is not. Troy's father, Dan, played at Delaware, while his brother committed to the Blue Hens a few days ago.

As for Worley, his move isn't nearly as surprising – he did not record a single tackle this year and rarely got on the field. Cornerback is also one of the positions in which the Nittany Lions are currently overloaded. The Coatesville, Pa. native's eventual destination is unknown.

While it always hurts to see players leave Happy Valley, we want to wish Reeder and Worley all the success in the world as they continue their football careers elsewhere.
