Penn State CB T.J. Johnson leaving program, per report

Cornerback T.J. Johnson will transfer out of the Penn State football program, according to a report from Lions247. Johnson was part of Penn State’s 2016 recruiting class and took a redshirt during last season.

From Cleveland, Johnson was rated a 3-star recruit in the 2016 class and the No. 140 cornerback. Johnson never appeared in a game for Penn State, but he did make an impression during the team’s spring game. Johnson had five tackles (1.5 for a loss) and an interception in April’s Blue-White Game.

Penn State still has depth at corner even with Johnson leaving and senior John Reid sidelined for the year. Grant Haley, Christian Campbell, Amani Oruwariye and Lamont Wade all figure to see reps at corner for the Nittany Lions.
