Back in February, wide receiver George Campbell announced that he was transferring from Florida State. With only one year of eligibility remaining, the graduate transfer had his sights set on Penn State.

The Nittany Lions are losing a bunch of playmakers for this upcoming season, which includes Trace McSorely and Miles Sanders. Head coach James Franklin must have been ecstatic to hear that Campbell was looking to join his football program.

Coming out of high school, 247Sports listed Campbell as the No. 3 wideout in his class. Unfortunately, the former five-star recruit hasn't lived up to expectations during his time with the Seminoles.

Campbell thought a potential move to Penn State would help, but it turns out he'll actually have to find another program to finish out his collegiate career.

247Sports is reporting that Campbell wasn't able to get into the graduate program at Penn State, ultimately preventing him from playing for the football team.

This is a tough blow for both parties, yet it has to sting more for Campbell.

He'll still be immediately eligible to play wherever he transfers to this offseason. On the flip side, Campbell will have to get up to speed in a shorter amount of time.

Stay tuned to find out where Campbell will play this fall.
