Penn State football vs. Illinois, Jacobs (23) & Luketa (40)

Linebackers Curtis Jacobs (23) and Jesse Luketa (40) celebrate Luketa’s sack during Penn State football's homecoming game against Illinois at Beaver Stadium, Saturday, Oct. 23, 2021 in University Park, Pa. The Fighting Illini bested the Nittany Lions 20-18 in nine periods of overtime.

Penn State hybrid defender Jesse Luketa seems to be playing his final game in Beaver Stadium and heading to the NFL.

Luketa announced via his Twitter that the Rutgers game would be his final game in Beaver Stadium, indicating that he will be departing Penn State following this year.

Luketa has 47 total tackles and six tackles for loss and even picked up a pick-six in 2021 after the Ottawa, Ontario, native made the transition from linebacker to defensive end this season.
