Penn State WR Justin Brown Will Transfer to Oklahoma

Report: Penn State WR Justin will transfer to Oklahoma and arrive on Monday: Penn State senior wide receiver Justin Brown has told Oklahoma coaches he will transfer and play for the Sooners, a source told ESPN's Joe Schad on Saturday.

Brown has one season of eligibility and can play immediately for the Sooners.

At 6-foot-3, 210 pounds, Brown 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 was the Nittany Lions' most experienced returning receiver.

Brown ends his Penn State career with 1,047 receiving yards.

He was also dynamic as a returner, ranking 36th nationally in punt returns in 2011.

Brown, who visited Norman last weekend, plans to arrive in Oklahoma on Monday, the source said.

Brown will compete for a starting job immediately at OU. At the moment, the Sooners have only one non-suspended receiver -- junior Kenny Stills -- who has made a catch wearing an OU uniform. (ESPN.com)
