Former Penn State wide receiver Shawney Kersey is transferring to Marshall, according to ESPN's Josh Moyer.
Kersey left the Nittany Lions' for what the team referred to as "personal reasons" last September. The 6-foot-1 wideout becomes the third Penn State player to transfer to Marshall within the last six months, joining former wide receiver Devon Smith and cornerback Derrick Thomas.
The Woodbury, N.J., native was the No. 2 wide receiver on coach Bill O'Brien's depth chart at the beginning of last season, behind only Allen Robinson. Kersey only stayed with the team for its first two games, however, and caught six passes for 44 yards in that span.
Kersey also had five receptions for 108 yards in the 2011 season, but his best performance in a Penn State uniform came in the 2010 Blue-White game when he grabbed two touchdowns.
Because of NCAA transfer rules currently in place for Penn State players, Kersey will be eligible to play for the Thundering Herd in the 2013 season.
