Geno Lewis To Transfer For Final Year Of Eligibility

Update: 12:08 p.m. Geno Lewis announced per his personal Twitter account that he’ll be transferring to Oklahoma, likely due to the departure of standout Sooner wide receiver Sterling Shepard and the presence of Heisman hopeful Baker Mayfield under center.

Redshirt junior wide receiver Geno Lewis announced today via Twitter that he’ll be leaving Penn State and transferring to another school for his final year of eligibility.

It isn’t clear where Lewis will be transferring, but he’ll be able to play immediately as a graduate transfer. Based on a recent string of twitter follows, Arizona State, Arizona, and Oklahoma could all be in play for Lewis’ services. He thanked all three head coaches that he’s played under during his career at Penn State, including Joe Paterno for recruiting him.

Lewis, a three year starter for the Lions, saw his opportunities significantly drop in 2015 with the emergence of sophomore sensation Chris Godwin, and felt that it was in his best interest to move on.

The veteran receiver came to Penn State as a highly coveted four-star prospect, and leaves the Lions with 90 career catches for 1,181 yards and eight touchdowns.

We’ll keep you updated as more news breaks regarding where Lewis will play next year.
