Less than a week after his entrance into the NCAA Transfer Portal, Danny Dalton has found a new home. The redshirt junior tight end will transfer to Boston College following his graduation in the spring to play his final two years of college football.

A three-star prospect and the top player in Massachusetts in the class of 2016, Dalton's transfer comes as no surprise, as he was buried behind sophomore Pat Freiermuth and redshirt senior Nick Bowers on the depth chart. With fifth-year senior John Holland, redshirt freshman Zack Kuntz, and incoming freshman Brenton Strange also vying for snaps, it was expected that Penn State was going to lose a tight end at some point this offseason. Dalton appeared in just three games during the 2018 campaign, catching three passes for 19 yards.
Dalton is the latest of the 11 Nittany Lions in the Transfer Portal to announce their next destination. Sterling Jenkins (Duquesne), Isaiah Humphries (Cal), Brelin Faison-Walden (Charlotte), and Jarvis Miller (UMass) have all confirmed their next stops, while Juwan Johnson, Dae'Lun Darien, Brandon Polk, Zech McPhearson, Lamont Wade, and Alex Gellerstedt are all still weighing their options.
As a graduate transfer, Dalton will be eligible to play immediately.
