Manny Bowen And Irvin Charles No Longer Nittany Lions

0

Penn State has parted ways with linebacker Many Bowen and wide receiver Irvin Charles ahead of its Fiesta Bowl clash with Washington. Both were removed from the Nittany Lions’ roster, then a team spokesperson confirmed their departures.

A starter to begin the season that has a team fourth-best 51 tackles on the year, Bowen missed the final three games of the 2017 regular season — listed as “not available” due to “a violation of team rules.” In the junior’s three seasons with the team, he played in 30 games and was a constant factor for the defense.

His troubles began last year after playing each of the 13 games leading up to the postseason. He was suspended for the Rose Bowl with Saeed Blacknall, also due to a violation of team rules.

Charles didn’t have much of an impact in two active seasons on offense — aside from his 80-yard touchdown reception that led the comeback charge against Minnesota to kickstart last year’s nine-game winning streak and Big Ten Championship run. That was the only touchdown of his college career for a player who mostly factored in on punt and kick return coverage.
