08/16/2012 - Through all the turmoil of the Penn State child sex-abuse scandal and the threats that followed his decision to leave the program, receiver Justin Brown still reflects on his time in Happy Valley in a positive way. In fact, he will be working his way toward a media studies degree from Penn State while he plays for Oklahoma. If he had not been able to arrange for the credits he earns now to transfer back to his old school, he says he wouldn't have joined the Sooners this season. As it is, he will be able to finish his school work this semester. He is not sure if he will be able to go through his graduation in person. ''Just being there for years and putting in a lot of work on and off the field and in the community - no disrespect to Oklahoma, I'm sure that this is a great university - but I just felt like it meant a lot to get that Penn State degree,'' said Brown, one of nine players to leave the Nittany Lions after NCAA sanctions were handed down that allowed them to transfer and play right away without sitting out this season. ''If a lot of courses weren't going to transfer, then I wouldn't be at OU,'' he said. ''I was going to get my degree regardless. Everything worked out. Everything fell in place.'' Since his decision, Brown has heard from Penn State fans who were supportive and some who weren't, including a few who he said sent him death threats on Twitter. It's nothing he hasn't been able to handle and it's not like it's coming from his former teammates. ''It's not like everybody is outside of my dorm or outside of the football building here waiting for me,'' he said. ''It's Twitter. You can't take Twitter too seriously.'' - AP Sports
08/15/2012 - Oklahoma wide receiver Justin Brown will move into his new apartment at the end of the week. He'll finally be able to unpack the boxes and settle into his new home. The journey that brought him from Penn State to Norman for his senior season will be complete. On the field, the transition has been close to seamless. "The last three days, he's been working with (first-teamers)," Sooner coach Bob Stoops said Tuesday. "He's still here or there a signal or two, but overall he's getting it. He's making plays and he's good." OU has the receiver it badly needed to help replenish a lean receiving corps. Brown's addition could make a greater impact than any first-year player on the roster. Away from the field is where Brown still has conflicting emotions. He'll play for OU this season. He's embraced everything about the program and the team. It was the main draw that brought him here. Still, when Brown graduates in December with a degree in media studies, his diploma will be from Penn State. He'll take 13 hours of classes at OU this semester. All of them will transfer toward his Penn State degree. That was the only potential deal-breaker when he was deciding whether or not to leave the school last month. "Down to the last day, I was working with the dean back at Penn State," Brown said. "He helped me out a lot, showing me what courses would transfer and which ones wouldn't. If a lot of courses weren't going to transfer, I wouldn't be at OU. I was going to get my degree regardless. Everything worked out and everything fell into place." - John Shinn, The Norman Transcript
08/07/2012 - Senior wide receiver Justin Brown officially transferred to Oklahoma, a major boon for the Sooners and another hit for Penn State. Brown was the Nittany Lions' second-leading receiver in 2011 with 35 receptions for 517 yards and two touchdowns. He's the ninth player to transfer from State College since the NCAA announced sanctions against the school and freed current players to transfer without sacrificing eligibility this season. Brown practiced with Oklahoma on Monday but wasn't allowed to wear pads. "He was incredibly impressive out there in one day," coach Bob Stoops said. Stoops announced that suspended receiver Kameel Jackson wouldn't return to the program. Two other receivers -- Jaz Reynolds and Trey Franks -- are practicing with the team but suspended from playing in games, Stoops said. That leaves only one receiver, junior Kenny Stills, with a reception in the Oklahoma offense. Stoops said Monday that Brown would also return punts for Oklahoma. He was 36th in the country in punt returns at Penn State last season. At 6-3, 209, Brown is nifty but also has the power and runs with the momentum to bust through arm tackles against back-peddling punt coverage defenders. Brown was Penn State's most experienced wide receiver. He had 1,047 career receiving yards, 20th in program history. - The Sports Xchange
08/07/2012 - Former Penn State receiver Justin Brown has arrived at Oklahoma. Coach Bob Stoops announced Tuesday that Brown is now on the roster, bolstering an inexperienced group of receivers. Brown will be eligible to play this season because of the NCAA's penalties against Penn State following the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse case. Brown was the second-leading receiver for the Nittany Lions last season, with 35 catches for 517 yards and three touchdowns. Stoops says he's confident that the senior can quickly fit in with the Sooners. Brown is one of nine players to leave Penn State this offseason. He is the second offensive starter to depart, after running back Silas Redd transferred to Southern California. - AP Sports
08/07/2012 - In one day, Oklahoma suddenly doubled the number of experienced receivers that will take the field for the Sooners in the season opener. Former Penn State receiver Justin Brown went through his first practice with the Sooners on Tuesday, completing the process of transferring that started last week. Brown, a senior, will be eligible to play this season because of the NCAA's penalties against Penn State following the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse case. He was dropped from the Nittany Lions' roster Sunday, arrived in Norman on Monday night and was able to hit the field with his new team by Tuesday morning. Before Brown's arrival, Kenny Stills was the only Sooners receiver who had caught a pass in college and wasn't suspended indefinitely. "I can't say enough, looking out there today when you see him added to the equation, a guy that's a senior that has three years' experience of playing and fighting people, crack back blocking on people, and catching the ball," coach Bob Stoops said. "He's a natural catching the football, so he's going to bring a ton. It's going to be exciting." Brown was the second-leading receiver for the Nittany Lions last season, with 35 catches for 517 yards and three touchdowns. He is one of nine players to leave Penn State this offseason and the second offensive starter to depart, after running back Silas Redd transferred to Southern California. "It was very difficult and emotional," Brown said. "I talked to [my teammates] before I made the decision and while I was in the process and they told me to just make the best decision for you and they told me they were going to support me either way. "That meant a lot to have their approval, especially since I have been playing with them for three years." - AP Sports
08/04/2012 - Another Penn State player reportedly has decided to transfer. Senior wide receiver and punt returner Justin Brown has informed Oklahoma coaches that he will join the Sooners for his final season of eligibility, ESPN.com reported Saturday. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound Brown was the Nittany Lions' second leading receiver last season with 35 catches for 517 yards and two touchdowns. He would be the ninth player to leave the program after the NCAA hit the school with sanctions in the aftermath of the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Brown could be an immediate contributor at Oklahoma, which has a dearth of players at the position in camp because of suspensions. Earlier Saturday, coach Bob Stoops announced that suspended receiver Kameel Jackson wouldn't return to the program. Brown is expected to arrived on campus Monday, a source told ESPN.com. His loss is a blow to Penn State's receiving and return corps. Brown totaled 1,047 receiving yards during his career and ranked 36th in the country in punt returns in 2011. - The Sports Xchange
08/03/2012 - Penn State receiver Justin Brown told the Oklahoman that he could be transferring to OU in the coming days. Brown, a senior, would be an immediate impact player for the Sooners. Last season he led the Nittany Lions with 35 receptions, 517 yards and two touchdowns. Brown would also help fill the void early in the season left by suspended receivers Jaz Reynolds and Trey Franks. Reynolds and Franks were reinstated on Wednesday but coach Bob Stoops said both would miss a "considerable" amount of games. Brown is still considering staying at Penn State and he has also been in contact with Cincinnati and Illinois. - C.J. Moore, CBSSports.com
