Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Another football player has left Penn State. Junior wide receiver Shawney Kersey has left the team for “personal reasons” according to the team’s twitter feed.

The redshirt junior becomes the 12th player to leave the team since the NCAA placed sanctions on the program in response to the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal.

Kersey caught six passes for 44 yards in the Nittany Lions’ first two games of the season.

Penn State, who already lost receivers Justin Brown (transferred to Oklahoma St.) and Devon Smith (left team in the offseason due to personal reasons), is currently ranked 64th in the country with 234.5 passing yards per game.
