Penn State WR Justin Brown Heading to Oklahoma

Penn State senior wide receiver Justin Brown becomes the latest Nittany Lion to bolt Happy Valley as he has decided to join the Oklahoma Sooners.

Brown has one season of eligibility and can play immediately for the Sooners thanks to NCAA exemptions.

The wideout’s name was dropped from Penn State’s roster Sunday.

Brown’s addition comes at a good time for the Sooners, and at 6-foot-3, 210 pounds he instantly becomes the biggest receiver on Oklahoma’s roster. He was Penn State’s second-leading receiver last season, grabbing 35 catches for 517 yards and two touchdowns.

He’s also capable as a returner, ranking 36th nationally in punt returns in 2011.

Brown will get a chance to earn a starting spot since at the moment the Sooners have only one non-suspended receiver in junior Kenny Stills.

Oklahoma announced Saturday that sophomore wide receiver Kameel Jackson had been  dismissed from the team.

Jackson was one of four players who had been suspended indefinitely, but Stoops announced earlier this week that the other three had been cleared to return to practice although they would miss multiple games this season.

Veteran wideouts Jaz Reynolds and Trey Franks were put back on scholarship this week. Defensive back Quentin Hayes was the other player suspended indefinitely in May.

The Sooners needed some good news on the field after already learning this week that center Ben Habern – who had started 30 games and served as a team captain – quit football because of lingering concerns over neck and back injuries. He had also suffered a broken arm and leg during his college career.
