After making the switch from corner to safety in the offseason, redshirt sophomore Trent Gordon has entered the NCAA Transfer Portal.
Gordon, a three-star prospect in the class of 2018 out of Manvel High School in Texas, played in four games in 2018 but preserved his redshirt status. He then played in 10 games a year ago and had appeared thrice this season without recording a statistic.
Over the course of his career he’s notched 21 tackles and five pass breakups. Gordon joins Isaiah Humphries and Jordan Miner as defensive backs in the 2018 recruiting class no longer on the roster, with the former transferring and the latter having to retire due to a medical condition. That means the Nittany Lions currently have no defensive backs on the roster from the 2018 class.
Gordon chose the Nittany Lions over Michigan, Florida and LSU among a slew of offers. He impressed in limited action, mostly on special teams, as a freshman. As a sophomore he saw time at slot corner and showed promise, but injuries slowed his progression before a position change.
