A former top wide receiver recruit announced where he will finish his collegiate football career. Former Penn State wide receiver Juwan Johnson announced his transfer from the Nittany Lions football program earlier this year.

It didn't take him very long to find a new home. Johnson took to Twitter on Thursday night to announce he's headed to the Pac-12.

Johnson is taking his talents to Oregon. The Ducks led the way for Johnson since he took a visit to Eugene in mid-January.

Now he's officially headed to play for head coach Mario Cristobal.

Johnson was tabbed as one of the nation's breakout candidates for the 2018 college football season after he put together an impressive sophomore season in 2017.

After racking up 57 catches for 701 yards and a score in 2017, Johnson's rapport with quarterback Trace McSorley seemed destined to grow in 2018.

However, as McSorley struggled with injuries for most of the season, Johnson struggled to catch the ball and wound up with just 25 receptions for 352 yards and one score this fall.

Now he'll take his talents to Oregon and be immediately eligible to play for the Ducks as a graduate transfer. He'll pair nicely with returning starting quarterback Justin Herbert as Oregon looks to make its way back into title contention.
