Former Penn State CB T.J. Johnson announces he will transfer to Cincinnati

Three days after a report that he planned to transfer out of Penn State, Nittany Lions cornerback T.J. Johnson announced Thursday that he’s headed to Cincinnati.

“It is very unfortunate that this could not work out but I will forever have great love for the the people I met and great relationships that were formed,” he wrote of his time at Penn State.

Johnson arrived at Penn State in the fall of 2016 as a 3-star recruit out of Cleveland, choosing the Nittany Lions over Cincinnati, Illinois and others. He did not play during his freshman year but did record five tackles and an interception during Penn State’s spring game in April.

Even with Johnson gone, the Nittany Lions are deep at cornerback, with Grant Haley, Christian Campbell, Amani Oruwariye and Lamont Wade likely to see time at the position.
