Offensive lineman Khamrone Kolb is leaving Penn State and transferring to Fordham, according to Lions247.com.
A redshirt sophomore, Kolb was not listed on the depth chart coach Bill O’Brien released on June 5.
Kolb was pegged as a three-star recruit by Rivals.com in the 2010 class out of Lake Braddock secondary in northern Virginia, but never made an impact at Penn State. After redshirting in 2010, Kolb appeared in just one game last season, as he saw the field in a Sept. 24 contest against Eastern Michigan.
The 6-foot-5, 324-pound tackle also had offers from Wisconsin, Virginia Tech and Illinois out of high school, but will now play for Fordham, which plays in the Division I Football Championship Subdivsion (FCS).
Kolb’s departure now makes it five players who have left the team since O’Brien was hired to lead the program in January.
Defensive lineman Shawn Oakman and cornerback Curtis Drake were both dismissed from the team and wide receiver Devon Smith and defensive back Derrick Thomas are no longer on the roster due to what the team has called “personal reasons.”
