Penn State Defensive Tackle Jamil Pollard To Transfer To Rutgers, According To Reports

Penn State lost another player Sunday, as Brett McMurphy is reporting that freshman defensive tackle Jamil Pollard is going to transfer to Rutgers.

Pollard, a New Jersey native, was a four-star recruit on many recruiting services and ranked in the top-20 nationally for his position. He originally committed to Penn State in late December of 2011, but much has changed since then including the sanctions the NCAA placed on the football program.

Pollard had offers from numerous other schools, including Alabama and Florida.

The transfer is a huge upgrade for Rutgers, which now has a young defensive lineman with plenty of potential for the next four years. Rutgers originally offered him a scholarship, but he never truly considered going there during his initial recruitment period.
