Yesterday was the day that Penn State has lost several players.

Kevin Haplea is the latest transfer to leave Happy Valley. Haplea, a junior tight end, has decided to transfer to Florida State.

On the same day, Silas Reed left for the University of Southern California, and Rob Bolden left for Louisiana State University. Khairi Fortt has reportedly left for the University of California. However, his parents are saying that Fortt has not officially enrolled there.

All players will be allowed to play right away after the NCAA sanctions. Haplea will have two seasons to play for the Seminoles with a redshirt year available should he get hurt.

Haplea could become the starting tight end, depending on how the pre-season practices go.

Dan Hicks, a defensis lineman turned tight end, is expected to give Haplea his toughest competition for the starting job. Last season, he had three passes for 21 yards and a touchdown.
