Anthony Fera Elects To Transfer From Penn State, According To Report

Another player has elected to leave Penn State University to complete their collegiate football careers elsewhere, as kicker Anthony Fera has reportedly elected to join the Texas Longhorns for the 2012 NCAA season. ESPN's Joe Schad first reported the decision by Fera on Twitter.

After finishing No. 17 in the nation in field goal accuracy, Fera will make a nice addition to the Texas roster while leaving the Nittany Lions with a hole on special teams. Fera also leaves a hole at the punter position, where he finished No. 37 in the country in average distance.

Fera is the second starter to announce a decision to leave PSU after Silas Redd announced his choice to transfer to USC on Tuesday. Also choosing to leave the Nittany Lions is incoming freshman Jamil Pollard who has reportedly decided to attend Rutgers in the fall instead.

The count for players leaving Penn State has reached eight, with one additional recruit decommitting from the University.
