Former Penn State receiver Juwan Johnson transferring to Oregon

Penn State’s Juwan Johnson runs after a catch as Cameron Watkins of the Illinois Fighting Illini reaches for the tackle at Memorial Stadium on Sept. 21, 2018 in Champaign, Ill.

Former Penn State wide receiver Juwan Johnson announced Thursday on Twitter that he is transferring to Oregon for his final season of eligibility.

Johnson, who starred at Glassboro High School, put out a tweet that read “Eugene, see you this fall #GoDucks” with a photograph of a player wearing an Oregon uniform.

Because the 6-foot-4, 225-pound Johnson received his undergraduate degree in December from Penn State, he will be eligible to play for the Ducks right away.

Johnson issued an Instagram post on Jan. 11 announcing that he had entered the NCAA transfer database and would not play his final season at Penn State. He struggled last season with dropped passes and missed three games with an injury, catching 25 passes for 352 yards.

In the 2017 season, Johnson had 54 receptions for 701 yards.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
