According to reports, Penn State reserve offensive lineman Des Holmes is the latest Nittany Lion to enter the NCAA transfer portal. Holmes has one season of eligibility remaining.
Penn State reserve offensive lineman Des Holmes has entered the Transfer Portal, sources have confirmed to @247SportsPortal. A redshirt senior, he'll play his last available year elsewhere. https://t.co/cRGlkob4NY @247Sports— Sean Fitz (@seanfitz247) December 8, 2021
Holmes came to Penn State out of Cardinal O'Hara in Springfield, PA, as a three-star recruit in the class of 2017. Following a redshirt year, he played in 34 games throughout his career. It seemed as though he'd be in the mix to challenge for a starting or primary backup role in 2021, but that never materialized.
