Wide receiver Richy Anderson, whose transfer from Penn State this summer left an already thin receiving corps in more trouble, has enrolled at cross-state rival Temple.
First spotted by 247Sports, Anderson will sit out a year before being eligible to play for the Owls in 2015. Anderson’s departure came as a surprise this summer — though he only caught 13 passes for 111 yards last season, the rising sophomore was expected to play a bigger role in 2014. After all, Penn State is returning a mere two receivers who have made a reception during their Penn State careers this season in Geno Lewis and Matt Zanellato. True freshman DaeSean Hamilton slid into the No. 2 spot that Anderson once looked likely to hold in the depth chart James Franklin released yesterday.
It’s still unclear why the Frederick, Md., native transferred from Penn State. He was part of a slew of June transfers from the team that included offensive lineman Anthony Alosi, backup quarterback D.J. Whipple, and fellow receiver Jonathan Warner.
