Once a four-star recruit and a top high school wide receiver in the country, Brandon Polk did not find the kind of success at Penn State that he might have liked. After four years with the Nittany Lions but with a year of eligibility remaining, Polk is ready to move on from James Franklin's team.

Taking to Twitter on Thursday, Polk announced that he would be transferring to another school for his final year of college football.

"After discussing this decision with my family and others close to me, and sending up more prayers seeking guidance from God, I have decided to leave Penn State after I graduate this Spring, and play my last year of college football elsewhere."

Polk did not specify where he intends to transfer in his statement.

In four years at Penn State, Polk's on-field contributions were limited.

2018 was a high-water mark for Polk, as he had a career-high 162 yards and two touchdowns on just nine receptions.

His final numbers at Penn State included 27 receptions for 367 yards and four touchdowns.

Per 247Sports, Pol was the the No. 316 prospect in the nation in the Class of 2015. He was also the No. 39 wide receiver in the country, and the No. 13 prospect from the state of Virginia.
