Penn State's Price reportedly leaves team

5/25/2010

Penn State sophomore wide receiver A.J. Price has been released from his scholarship, according to a report by FightOnState.com.

The 6-foot-4, 177-pound Price redshirted in 2008 and didn't catch a pass last season in six games for the Nittany Lions. He had two receptions for 26 yards in the Blue-White Game on April 24.

A Penn State team spokesman couldn't confirm Price's departure when contacted by ESPN.com earlier today. Price, a native of Reston, Va., might have worked his way into Penn State's rotation at wideout this fall.

I'm not too concerned about Penn State's wide receiver depth, even with the losses of Price and incoming recruit Levi Norwood, who opted out of his letter of intent and will play for Baylor. Derek Moye and Graham Zug are a nice 1-2 combination, and Justin Brown could be a name to watch this fall. Chaz Powell, who ranked fourth on the team in receiving last fall, moved to cornerback during spring practice.
