Penn State Football Drops Myles Hartsfield

Amid the hazing scandal that has rocked the Sayreville (NJ) high school football team, the Penn State coaching staff has decided to “move on” from three-star commit Myles Hartsfield, pulling the running back’s scholarship offer. The news was first reported this morning by Blue-White Illustrated’s Ryan Snyder.

Seven football players were charged in relation to the hazing incidents, and six have been taken into custody by police. The names of the students taken into custody have not been released, but police were seen at Hartsfield’s house on Friday night. The seven students have been suspended from the high school.

On Saturday, assistant athletic director Jeff Nelson gave a statement to NJ.com, saying, “We continue to monitor the situation at that institution.”

After the news, the Penn State recruiting class of 2015 dropped one spot to No. 10 in the country.

Hartsfield committed to Penn State in June after rushing for 1,586 yards and 24 touchdowns as a junior. He is rated the No. 16 prospect in the state of New Jersey.
