Two Players Leave Football Program

Yesterday, it was announced that two Penn State football players, senior CB Mike Wallace and sophomore OL Luke Graham, will be leaving the program, although neither departures appear to be scandal related and both intend to stay at Penn State.

Wallace’s situation has been rumored for weeks, but was first reported yesterday by Ben Jones. Wallace is suffering from a pectoral tear and will remain with the team in a “leadership role” next season. An already thin Penn State secondary got thinner with this injury, with very little experience at the position heading into next season.

However, the fact that Wallace is staying at Penn State is good news for Primary Element fans, and also for our friends over at The Lion 90.7 FM where Mike “Wallz” hosts a weekly radio show.

Reserve offensive lineman redshirt sophomore¬†Luke Graham will also be leaving the team for undisclosed reasons, but will still remain enrolled at Penn State. As part of the sanctions, NCAA rules stipulate that Graham will still count against Penn State’s scholarship limit even if he is no longer on the roster.
