Jon Graham to Transfer from Penn State

Forward Jon Graham has been granted a release from the Penn State basketball team and will transfer, per a news release from the athletic department. Graham's departure is yet another event in what has been a wild offseason for the Nittany Lions filled with recruits committing for 2014 and 2015, and a bevy of players coming and going. While Graham certainly wasn't Penn State's best player, as evidenced by the fact he regressed statistically between his redshirt freshman and sophomore seasons, he provided the team with solid defense (even if he was prone to getting into foul trouble, as evidenced by the fact he averaged nearly seven fouls per 40 minutes last season), hustle and effort.

This may put undergrads majoring in security and risk analysis in a bind as some of its highest profile professors leave.
