Redshirt junior Ryan Breen has left the Penn State football program. With his departure and the graduation of starter Jeremy Boone, this leaves an empty roster slot for a punter for the 2010 Nittany Lions.
Breen, from Clarkston, Michigan and reportedly unhappy, started spring semester but left the university within the past two weeks.
Although no punters exist on the roster at the moment, place-kickers Collin Wagner and Anthony Fera were both punters in high school.
Breen was called into action for a single punt during the 2009 season.
