The offseason is underway for Penn State Nittany Lions football.

Transfers are coming in and going out. Some players have left early to enter the NFL Draft. Others are staying late, using an extra season of eligibility granted by the NCAA due to the COVID pandemic.

BWI is tracking the roster changes with its 2022 offseason scholarship chart.

As currently constituted, Penn State has between 90 and 84 players on scholarship for next season. The scholarship limit imposed by the NCAA is 85.

Below that on this page, you can view the chart in a year-by-year format, as well as a positional scholarship analysis.

This page will be updated throughout the offseason as new information becomes available.

Players in italics took a redshirt season

*Indicates a player with senior eligibility in 2021 who has not publicly announced whether he will use his extra year of eligibility from the COVID pandemic

**Junior college safety Tyrece Mills did not sign with Penn State during the early signing period.
