Former Penn State cornerback T.J. Johnson has announced where he’s headed.
Last week, Penn State cornerback T.J. Johnson, a former three-star recruit, announced that he’d be transferring from the university. Friday, he announced where he’ll be continuing his career.
Johnson announced in a tweet that he’s headed to Cincinnati.
Here’s what Johnson had to say:
“Signing on to play for Penn State University has been one of the proudest of moments of my life as well as my family and friends. Which is why this was one of the hardest decisions of my life. To the fans and Nittany Lion family, I would like to say thank you for the opportunity and love that you have provided to myself and my family during my time at Penn State. However, I have decided to pursue a different path and new opportunity at The University of Cincinnati. I feel that this is the right decision for me and the individuals who have supported me. I will always be forever grateful for this opportunity that was given to my family and I. It is very unfortunate that this could not work out but I will forever have great love for the people I’ve met and great relationships that were formed. This is a chapter in my life that I am closing but as well as opening a new one. I am proud to be a bearcat!”
Here’s his tweet:

The 6-foot-2, 185-pound player wasn’t expected to see much playing time at Penn State, so perhaps a fresh start will lead to more opportunity on the field.
