Levis earned his undergraduate degree in finance from Penn State in May 2021.

There is no ill will because of the transfer; Levis only has the finest things to say about Penn State.

About his PSU experience, Levis said:

“I learned that sometimes things don’t go your way… Nothing but love for all the coaches and all the players at Penn State. I wouldn’t trade that time for anything.”
