Wide receiver could be Penn State's biggest question mark heading into 2009 after the program lost three multiyear starters in Derrick Williams, Deon Butler and Jordan Norwood.

The Nittany Lions took a big step toward filling the void this afternoon as wide receiver Justin Brown from Wilmington, Del., announced he would play for head coach Joe Paterno. Brown chose Penn State over Rutgers and becomes the fourth wide receiver in the Lions' 2009 class.

The 6-foot-3, 209-pound Brown ranks as the country's 22nd best receiver, according to ESPN's Scouts Inc.

Penn State's class likely is complete with 27 members, headlined by top defenders Glenn Carson and Darrell Givens.
