Florida State Recruiting: Penn State TE Kevin Haplea Transfers To FSU

The Penn State Nittany Lions have lost yet another transfer. Not long after running back Silas Redd announced that he would be playing at USC next season, Tomahawk Nation reports that tight end Kevin Haplea has decided to head to Tallahassee as a member of the Florida State Seminoles.

Haplea caught just three passes last season, but played a pivotal role as a blocker as he helped Redd to 1,241 yards rushing and seven touchdowns. Haplea will be a junior this season, and is eligible to play immediately. Normally, standard transfers have to sit out a season before they can play with their new team, but the NCAA waived the provision for players on Penn State's roster as part of the sanctions against the football program.

The Seminoles are desperate for tight end help after graduating two seniors from last season. The team had to resort to converting defensive lineman Dan Hicks during the offseason.
