Penn State Transfer Tracker: Who's Leaving For Where?

Bomani Jones on Penn State Football

The anticipated Penn State mass transfer exodus hasn't quite happened as some had feared, but more than a half-dozen players already appear to be striking out for elsewhere, including star running back Silas Redd to USC, quite a few other juniors, and a top incoming freshman defensive tackle.

The worst might not even be over yet for PSU, as players will still be able to transfer out after the season as well without NCAA penalty.

But here's a look at who's leaving so far, their spots on Penn State's depth chart, and where they're headed (Updated 9/13):
