Senior Justin Brown, Penn State's top returning wide receiver, has decided to leave the program, according to ESPN's Joe Schad.

Brown, who is reportedly headed to Oklahoma, is the second offensive starter to leave the team and is the  ninth player to transfer since July 23, when the NCAA handed down heavy sanctions.

"Penn State Sr WR Justin Brown has told Oklahoma coaches he will transfer there," Schad wrote on Twitter Saturday night. "Plans to arrive Monday."

In 2011, Brown was second on the team with 35 receptions and 517 receiving yards, scoring two touchdowns. He was also listed as the top punt returner on coach Bill O'Brien's post-spring depth chart.

Others to leave the program:

  • Redshirt junior kicker/punter Anthony Fera (Texas)
  • Junior running back Silas Redd (Southern Cal)
  • Junior linebacker Khairi Fortt (California)
  • Junior tight end Kevin Haplea (Florida State)
  • Junior quarterback Rob Bolden (LSU)
  • Redshirt freshman safety Tim Buckley (North Carolina State)
  • Freshman defensive lineman Jamil Pollard (Rutgers)
  • Redshirt freshman offensive lineman Ryan Nowicki (Illinois)
