The Penn State Nittany Lions are looking to add a little bit of experience to their ranks via the transfer portal, and may have the perfect prospect for their offensive line waiting for an offer.

According to PennLive, former Virginia offensive lineman R.J. Proctor has recently met with Penn State offensive line coach Matt Limegrover about a possible graduate transfer.

Proctor played three seasons with the Virginia Cavaliers, but only appeared in six games in 2018.

He took to Twitter on Thursday and expressed his excitement in meeting Limegrover:

Proctor joins Miami wide receiver Lawrence Cager as graduates looking into Penn State as a transfer destination.

The Nittany Lions could certainly use Proctor for some added depth.

The team is already slated to lose star linemen Connor McGovern and Ryan Bates to the NFL draft.

247Sports had Proctor as a three-star prospect in the Class of 2015.

The 6-foot-4, 300-plus-pound Proctor was a top-150 offensive lineman prospect, and the No. 40 prospect from the state of Virginia. His addition to the Nittany Lions offensive line could provide much-needed depth.

With a new quarterback under center in 2019, Penn State needs all the help it can get on the offensive front to make sure Tommy Stevens has a clean pocket.
