Reports: 3 Penn State players leaving program

BY Marcus Hartman • January 12, 2016

Penn State football is not only losing coaches. Tuesday a trio of reports indicated two Nittany Lions players are moving on as well. 

247Sports.com reported Tuesday linebacker Troy Reeder has decided to leave the program and will continue his career at Delaware. 

Penn State rising redshirt sophomore linebacker Troy Reeder will transfer, sources have informed Lions247. The Wilmington (Del.) Salesianum grad will transfer to Delaware and is eligible to play immediately. Reeder’s father, Dan, played for the Blue Hens and his younger brother Colby Reeder committed to the program last week.

After an injury to Nyeem Wartman-White on opening day, Reeder started 11 games as a redshirt freshman in 2015 and ended up fourth on the team in tackles with 67. 

Reeder was one of the first players to commit to Penn State's 2014 class. The Wilmington, Del., native was rated a three-star recruit by Scout.com. 

PennLive.com reported redshirt freshman Daquan Worley has also decided to transfer after sliding down the PSU depth chart at cornerback. 

Worley signed in 2014 as a three-star cornerback from Coatesville, Pa. 

The Centre Daily Times reported Gary Wooten Jr. will leave as a graduate transfer after making seven tackles in seven games in 2015. 

Since the Nittany Lions lost the TaxSlayer Bowl to Georgia on Jan. 2, Penn State has seen defensive coordinator Bob Shoup leave for Tennessee and offensive line coach Herb Hand go to Auburn.
