Ayron Monroe announced his intention to transfer in January, not long after Penn State’s 2018 season concluded with a Citrus Bowl loss to Kentucky. After nearly five months, Monroe’s next stop is official- he will be joining in-state foe Temple.

Monroe will have one year of eligibility with the Owls, after being a reserve safety during the past three seasons in State College. He took a redshirt season after joining the program in 2015. He entered Penn State as a three-star prospect and sixth-rated prospect of his class from the District of Columbia. Monroe selected Penn State over offers from Iowa, Nebraska, Maryland, Mississippi State and Georgia Tech, among others.

As a redshirt junior, Monroe contributed 10 tackles, a sack and a fumble recovery in 2018.

Penn State will not play Temple in 2019, and have no scheduled games against the Owls until they visit Philadelphia in 2026 for the first game of a home-and-home series. Temple finished with an 8-5 record in 2018, that included a Independence Bowl appearance against Duke.

We wish Aryon all the best at his new destination.
