Penn State has lost another offensive weapon.

Wide receiver Justin Brown is the latest player to leave the program in the aftermath of NCAA sanction. Sources say he will join the Oklahoma Sooners.

The senior wideout’s name was dropped from the roster Sunday. He would have been a key target in the revamped passing game under new coach and former Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien.

Nine players have now left the team the past week following the sanctions, which included a four-year bowl ban for the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal. One of those players, though – quarterback Rob Bolden – was given permission to look at other schools before penalties were announced.

Brown is the second key loss on offense, following the defection of star tailback Silas Redd to Southern California. Brown was the leading returning receiver with 35 catches.

I don’t blame these kids for leaving. They have to think about their futures and do what’s best for them.
