Shawney Kersey Transfers To Marshall

Rob Carr

The former Penn State wide receiver has decided to make his way to the hills of West Virginia.

Following in the footsteps of former Penn State football players Devon Smith and Derrick Thomas, Shawney Kersey has decided to continue his football career at Marshall, Scout($$) reported yesterday. Friend of BSD Marshall Thundering Blog has a story up on the transfer.

Kersey, who came into the 2012 season as Penn State's most experienced wide receiver, left early on into the season after catching six passes for 44 yards in the team's first two losses. In his Penn State career, he only hauled in 12 receptions for 154 yards. Obviously, it was not a huge loss with the emergence of Allen Robinson as the Big Ten's top wideout and every tight end being a pass-grabbing monster.

Marshall lost their top three receivers to graduation this past year so Kersey should be an immediate impact to the Herd offense. Because of the NCAA-sanctioned transfer rules still in place, Kersey will not have to sit out a year before competing. He will be able to line up beside Smith who used a redshirt this year. Maybe a change of scenery at a lower-tier D-1 school will be the factor which puts him over the hump he never seemed to climb at Penn State.
