In January, the Penn State Nittany Lions thought they were losing tight end Adam Breneman to retirement because of a chronic knee injury. However, it looks like they are losing him to transfer after he announced he would continue his career at UMass.
Breneman took to Twitter on Tuesday to announce that he would transfer to the Massachusetts Minutemen.
In the statement on Twitter, he mentioned Austin Whipple, who transferred from Penn State to play for the Minutemen, of who his dad Mark Whipple is the head coach.

Adam Breneman played in just two games during the 2015 season after he missed the entire 2014 season due to the knee injury everyone thought he was retiring because of. As a true freshman in 2013, he caught 15 passes for 186 yards and three touchdowns, proving that he could be an important piece for the Nittany Lions into the future.
He was the second highest-rated member of the Nittany Lions’ 2013 class behind only quarterback Christian Hackenberg, who is now playing in the NFL with the New York Jets.
As long as Breneman is healthy, he should make a big impact for the Minutemen this year.
