Another player is leaving State College.
Penn State senior wide receiver Justin Brown will transfer to Oklahoma, eligible to play immediately, according to a report from ESPN's Joe Schad Saturday night. He plans to arrive in Norman, Okla., on Monday to join the Sooners.

Brown, a 6-foot-3, 209-pound wideout, would become the ninth Nittany Lions' player to transfer in the wake of sanctions levied by the NCAA in July, allowing all returners to transfer to other programs without the usual penalty of sitting out a season.
The Delaware native finished with 35 receptions for 517 yards and two touchdowns and should provide a boost for the Oklahoma passing game, which is coping with the dismissal of wide receiver Kameel Jackson.
A season ago, the Sooners finished with a 10-3 overall record. Heading into 2012, they're ranked No. 4 in the USA Today coaches poll and are considered a serious candidate to win a program-second BCS national title.
