Former Penn State receiver lands at Marshall

Over four months after “parting ways” with the Penn State program, Shawney Kersey has found himself a new school to call his football home.

Guy Cipriano of the Centre Daily Times reports via Twitter that Kersey has decided to transfer to Marshall.  Cipriano notes that the wide receiver joins Devon Smith and Derrick Thomas as former Nittany Lions who have landed with the Herd.

Marshall, for what it’s worth, has yet to confirm Kersey’s addition to the football program.

After totaling six receptions for 44 yards in the first two games of the 2012 season, it was announced Kersey was no longer a member of the team.  Thanks to other departures at the position, Kersey had been Penn State’s leading returning receiver, having caught five passes for 108 yards in 2011.

Kersey was a three-star member of Penn State’s 2009 recruiting class.  He will be eligible to play immediately for the Herd in 2013.

    Marshall is the place to be if you want to transfer. They took two guys from Boston College last year and they started during their only year of eligibility.

    If I were a top high school player I wouldn’t go to Penn. St. No bowl games for the next few years. That would be enough for me.

    So playing in the Beef O’ Brady bowl or the Little Ceasar’s Pizza bowl once in your college career is what you would base your decision on?

    ONCE you’ve left the door open for many reactions to that question. PSU will still have recruits for the mere fact that players who have limited options would be honored to attend. Lets not forget that even if they aren’t going to be post season eligible O’brien is now a household name and that means so is PSU. For atleast 1 more year cuz after next year HE GONE!!
