Wide Receiver Shawney Kersey has decided to stay with the Nittany Lions after all, at least for this year, subsequent to emerging reports stating that he would transfer from PSU to parts unknown.
Bob Flounders of the Harrisburg Patriot-News had written a story about Kersey leaving due to his belief that given the number of other wide receivers, he would get scant playing time.
Kersey has played primarily on kickoff coverage this year. The Lions are loaded with wide receivers, many of whom are upperclassmen. A little patience will pay off for Kersey. With Zug leaving after this season and Moye after next, a good work ethic combined with his natural talent should give Kersey a good chance at a starting assignment within the next two seasons.
However, nothing is keeping him at Penn State after this season. At his age, impatience could prevail. Stay tuned for further developments.
