Penn State’s WR corps deplete as Justin Brown bolts for Oklahoma.
Penn State has lost another offensive starter as WR Justin Brown has elected to join the Oklahoma Sooners program.
Brown met with Penn State coach Bill O’Brien after he visited the Sooners last week and decided that his best interests lied elsewhere.
The 6’3 receiver‘s decision comes as he has only one remaining year of eligibility left.
Had he stayed at Penn State it could have been career suicide for his NFL ambitions as his draft stock certainly would plummeted in an offense that has lost it’s other key piece in RB Silas Redd who is heading to USC.
The switch is an upgrade for Brown’s skill set as even at its best Penn State is a run-first system.
The number-four ranked Sooners live to air-it-out and will provide a nice platform for brown to launch from.
Penn State lost another WR on Sunday when recruit Will Fuller decommitted to head to Notre Dame according to ESPN.
“Top notch education really tipped the boat for me,” Fuller said. “They have a 98 percent graduation rate for players.” “I just know I have a better opportunity at Notre Dame.”
After players and recruits initially dug in their heels in a show of solidarity, the Nittany Lions have been rocked by a slew of defections that seemingly pick up on a daily basis.
Brown and Redd are joined by Rob Bolden (QB, LSU), Tim Buckley (S, NC State), Anthony Fera (K/P, Texas), Khairi Fortt (LB, California), Kevin Haplea (TE, Florida State), Ryan Nowicki (OL, Illinois) and Jamil Pollard (DT, Rutgers) in their effort to put the past behind them and move forward with their collegiate careers.
