Shawney Kersey has left the Penn State football team

Penn State’s shallow pool of wide receivers just got a little more shallow. According to the tweet above, Shawney Kersey is no longer going to play football for Penn State. I wish him all the best.

Kersey had six catches for 44 yards in two games this season. According to Josh Moyer at ESPN’s NittanyNation, true freshman Trevor Williams is “expected” to take Kerey’s place in the starting lineup. Williams may be right under Kersey on Penn State’s depth chart, but he’s right now at best the fourth target behind Allen Robinson, Alex Kenney and tight end Kyle Carter.

That’s all for now. Hopefully Kersey has made the right decision for himself and his family. The rest of the Penn State football team should be able to step up. I know I was impressed by Kenney’s play on Saturday, so hopefully we get more of that in the future.
