Cornerback Joseph Johnson has decided to play elsewhere for his college career. The Class of 2020 announced his intention to transfer out of Penn State on Twitter earlier today:
April 20, 2021
Johnson entered Penn State as a three-star prospect out of Colonial Heights, Virginia. He was an early enrollee, joining the team in January 2020 ahead of his true freshman season. Johnson did not see any playing time last season, and likely believed that better opportunities were elsewhere after completing most of the spring session.
Johnson was ranked as the 11th-best prospect in Virginia, and 32nd-best cornerback of the 2020 class, according to 247. He held a long list of offers, including Ohio State, Texas A&M, Florida, West Virginia, and NC State, where he initially committed before decommitting to join the Nittany Lions.
We wish Joseph and his family all the best for the future.
