Wade to stay at Penn State

Safety Lamont Wade announced late Sunday night that he would be staying put at Penn State after entering his name in the NCAA transfer portal.

Wade, a rising junior, was a big-time recruit out of Clairton who played a good bit the past two seasons but had yet to crack the starting lineup with the Nittany Lions.

“After long thoughts, prayers, and conversations, I’ve come to the decision that I will be removing my name from the transfer portal and continue to pursue my degree which I’m 3 semesters away from completing and getting back to work with my brothers,” Wade tweeted.

“I look forward to making an impact on the field for the 2019 Penn State Nittany Lions. Sometimes we have to make short term sacrifices to achieve our long term goals, and I believe this is what’s best for me right now.”
