Penn State's loss is Oklahoma's gain as WR changing programs
Oklahoma's pursuit of a second consecutive College Football Playoff berth got a boost Monday with the news Penn State receiver Geno Lewis has opted to finish his career as a Sooner.
I've decided 2 play my last year at OKLAHOMA UNIVERSITY! Want 2 thank Coach Stoops & the entire staff for this opportunity. #SoonerNation— Geno Lewis (@GENOALLDAY7) January 11, 2016
Before revealing his next stop, Lewis posted a lengthy message thanking Penn State coaches and fans for the last four years.

"After a long discussion with my family and coaches," Lewis wrote on Twitter, "I have decided that it would be in my best interest to transfer from Penn State University to pursue my graduate studies and play football with my last year of eligibility. This was not an easy decision but I feel like it is time to move on to the next chapter in my life."
Lewis slid down the depth chart in 2015, when he caught 17 passes for 196 yards and three touchdowns.
Lewis started three games as a junior after starting 11 in 2014, when he caught 55 passes for 751 yards and two touchdowns.
