Update: Penn State’s Kevin Newsome ‘will be transferring as soon as possible’

Kevin Newsome

Earlier Thursday, reports surfaced that Kevin Newsome was likely leaving the Penn State football program and would probably seek a transfer.

This evening, Newsome has erased the “likely” and the “probably” from the equation.

In a conversation with the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, the quarterback confirmed that he will be transferring from PSU sooner rather than later.  Newsome will be seeking a landing spot where he could immediately, which would suggest he may be looking at dropping down a level to Div. 1-AA.

I will be transferring as soon as possible. But that’s all I can say,” Newsome told the paper.

Newsome came to Penn State as a highly-touted recruit in 2009, but has been buried at No. 3 on the Nittany Lions’ depth chart for the better part of a year.

With Newsome’s departure, and the academic issues that will likely sideline Paul Jones for all of 2011, Penn State will likely have only walk-on redshirt junior Shane McGregor behind Rob Bolden and Matt McGloin, who resumed the battle for the starting job as summer camp opened today.
