Penn State Football vs. Villanova, Caziah Holmes

Running back Caziah Holmes (26) runs the ball during Penn State football's game against Villanova at Beaver Stadium, Saturday, Sept. 25, 2021. Penn State beat Villanova 38-17.

Penn State officially lost one of its running backs Monday afternoon.

Nittany Lion sophomore Caziah Holmes, who didn't appear on Penn State's active roster on its website Saturday, announced his intention to transfer Monday.

The Titusville, Florida, native played for the blue and white for two seasons and finished the 2021 season with five rushes for 27 yards. He redshirted the campaign after appearing in all nine games as a true freshman in 2020, rushing 51 times for 227 yards and two touchdowns.

The running back room got even more crowded this offseason with the additions of highly touted freshmen Nick Singleton and Kaytron Allen, who should both see the field regularly this fall.
