Penn State Football Wide Receiver John Dunmore Withdraws From Team

Penn State football wide receiver John Dunmore has withdrawn from the program this semester, Penn State Athletics confirmed Wednesday. He is not in the transfer portal as of now and his name is still on the team’s roster.

“John Dunmore has withdrawn from Penn State this semester for personal reasons,” a team spokesperson said.

Dunmore, a redshirt freshman, only appeared in Penn State’s 35-7 victory over Purdue last season. He was never targeted and didn’t gain any yards during the game. He did, however, receive the Developmental Squad Offensive Player of the Week award during the week of the Maryland and Michigan games.

With the departure of KJ Hamler, Dunmore would have likely had a decent role in the Nittany Lions’ offense this season. As a second-year player, he would’ve been one of the older players in a relatively young wide receiver room, and could’ve been vying for a starting position. He was listed as a second-string wide receiver behind TJ Jones on Penn State’s spring 2020 depth chart in April.

It’s possible Dunmore returns to the program in the future, as Penn State Athletics’ statement only clarified he had withdrawn this semester.

James Franklin is set to meet with the media Wednesday night after practice, so we’ll update this post if he provides any more information.
