Report: Clairton’s LaMont Wade in NCAA Transfer Portal

Report: Clairton’s LaMont Wade in NCAA Transfer Portal

It seems that Clairton alum LaMont Wade is searching for a new collegiate home after two seasons at Penn State.

Wade, who chose the Nittany Lions over Pitt, Tennessee, West Virginia and others as a five-star prospect in 2016, has entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal, according to a report by ESPN’s Cole Cubelic.

Cubelic also reported that fellow PSU defensive back Zachariah McPhearson and wide receiver Brandon Polk are also in the transfer portal

A player entering his or her name into the portal does not definitively signal that they will transfer, but does allow coaches from other teams to contact them. Wade did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Pittsburgh Sports Now.

Wade, listed at 5-foot-9 and 195 pounds, played 20 games over his first two seasons at Penn State, making 49 tackles, two tackles for a loss, one sack and defending three passes. He mostly played nickel corner in his freshman year before moving to safety in 2018.

In Penn State’s official depth chart for the Citrus Bowl, Wade was listed as the primary backup to Nick Scott at safety. Scott is out of eligibility and it appeared that Wade was in line for a starting role in 2019 with the Lions.

If Wade transfers to another FBS school, he would have to sit out a year unless he was able to get a waiver from the NCAA. He would then have two seasons of eligibility remaining for the 2020 and 2021 seasons.
