The transfer count for Penn State football continues to grow, as the Nittany Lions have lost another veteran player in tight end Kevin Haplea, according to a report by Rich Scarella of The Reading Eagle.
Kevin Haplea, the most experienced tight end on the Penn State roster, has decided to transfer, a source told the Reading Eagle.
Haplea visited Florida State last week, but it was unclear to where he will transfer.
Haplea is officially the fourth Penn State player to transfer since the NCAA granted a waiver for the Penn State players to transfer without penalty or having to sit out for a season in order to be eligible.
Haplea caught six passes for 60 yards and one touchdown for Penn State in his career, but the 6-foot-4, 248-pound junior tight end's destination is not known at this time.
Update: Several outlets, including SB Nation's Tomahawk Nation, have confirmed that Haplea will in fact transfer to Florida State.
