Penn State WR, former 4-star prospect no longer with Nittany Lions
If there was one position group that couldn’t afford to take a hit this offseason, it was Penn State’s wide receiver room. But the Nittany Lions will move forward without one of the highest-rated prospects from its 2019 recruiting class.
On Wednesday, 247Sports reported the news that wide receiver and former 4-star recruit John Dunmore has withdrawn from Penn State. His name has not yet been entered into the NCAA transfer portal, but he is back home in Florida.
“John Dunmore has withdrawn from Penn State this semester for personal reasons,” a statement from Penn State read.
Dunmore was the No. 120 overall player in the 2019 recruiting class, but saw limited time on the field during his first season with the program. The freshman played in one game (vs. Purdue) and did not record any statistics.
With Penn State lacking depth at the receiver position, Dunmore was expected to be contributor in some capacity for the Nittany Lions in some capacity this fall. Jahan Dotson was the No. 1 receiver and Pat Freiermuth has sure hands at the tight end position. Outside of those two, PSU is still looking for answers.
