The wide receiver position just got some much needed reinforcements! Former Penn State recruiting target, and Ohio State wide receiver Julian Fleming is transferring to Penn State! The receiver has one year of eligibility remaining, after spending the past four seasons with the Buckeyes.

Although things didn’t work out the way he’d like in Columbus, is still a talented receiver. Fleming was the No. 8 wide receiver in the transfer portal class, and No. 33 player overall, in the current cycle. Just as he was in high school, Fleming remained a coveted prospect that could make an instant impact wherever he chose to go, and, he chose to finish out his college career with the Nittany Lions.

In his four seasons with Ohio State, Fleming caught 80 passes for 990 yards and seven touchdowns. 26 of those catches came this season, totaling 270 yards.

Welcome to Penn State, Julian!
