Penn State vs Memphis, Cotton Bowl Classic, Noah Cain (21)

Penn State running back Noah Cain (21) warms up ahead of the 84th annual Cotton Bowl Classic against Memphis at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on Dec. 28, 2019. 

Former Penn State running back Noah Cain has announced his transfer destination.

Cain, who announced he was in the transfer portal Thursday afternoon, announced that he will be transferring to LSU.

Born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Cain will be traveling back to the Bayou for the 2022 season — the same school where his cousin, Michael Clayton, earned All-SEC honors.

In 2019, Cain began to open eyes with his 443 rushing yard, eight touchdown freshman season

This past season, however, Cain struggled to perform at the same pace, but still led the Nittany Lions with four rushing touchdowns.

This past season came after a year in which Cain suffered a season-ending injury the first week of 2020.

Cain has two years of eligibility remaining.
