He was named as a third-team All-Big Ten pick in his redshirt freshman season in 2020 as well as his redshirt sophomore season in 2021. On Tuesday, Porter was named as a first-team All-Big Ten selection for his performance in 2022.
Porter -- the son of former NFL linebacker Joey Porter -- was second on the team this season with 11 pass breakups. Porter had 27 total tackles and was an integral player on the Nittany Lions' defense.
At 6-foot-2, 198 pounds, Porter is described by McShay as an instinctive player who excels in press-man coverage but also shows the skills necessary to play zone.
