Most of the headlines having to do with the NCAA Transfer Portal stem from quarterbacks, but Penn State wide receiver Juwan Johnson is reportedly exploring a move as well.
Johnson has been among the more productive skill position players on the Nittany Lions roster over the last few years.
Unfortunately, his 2018 was not the breakout season that many expected.
As a sophomore in 2017, Johnson caught 54 passes for 701 yards and a touchdown. He finished second on the team in receiving that year, behind only standout DaeSean Hamilton.
This year, with quarterback Trace McSorley fighting through injury and looking more inconsistent from week-to-week, Johnson caught 25 passes for 352 yards, both third on the team, and one touchdown.
Now, Johnson may head elsewhere to try and finish his college career on a high note.
According to college football insider Bruce Feldman, and confirmed by others, Juwan Johnson is in the NCAA Transfer Portal.
Johnson has the physical tools to be a star, but Penn State’s passing attack will be a bit of a mystery heading into 2019.

Penn State’s quarterback battle is expected to come down to Tommy Stevens and Sean Clifford. The team also adds a pair of blue-chip quarterbacks to the roster as freshman.
Johnson will be a big time free agent, if he decides to transfer. We’ll find out soon enough.
