WR Justin Brown Still Plans on Graduating From Penn State

Former PSU wide receiver Justin Brown still plans on graduating from Penn State: Justin Brown will be working his way toward a media studies degree from Penn State while he plays for Oklahoma. If he had not been able to work arrange for the credits he earns now to transfer back to his old school, he says he wouldn't have joined the Sooners this season.

As it is, he will be able to finish his school work this semester. He is not sure if he will be able to go through his graduation in person.

"Just being there for years and putting in a lot of work on and off the field and in the community -- no disrespect to Oklahoma, I'm sure that this is a great university -- but I just felt like it meant a lot to get that Penn State degree," said Brown, one of nine players to leave the Nittany Lions after NCAA sanctions were handed down that allowed them to transfer and play right away without sitting out this season.

"If a lot of courses weren't going to transfer, then I wouldn't be at OU," he said. "I was going to get my degree regardless. Everything worked out. Everything fell in place." (AP/York Dispatch)
