Nittany Notebook (10-7): Freshman WR Dunmore no longer on PSU team

Welcome to our daily Nittany Notebook. This post will be updated frequently throughout the day with news, notes and sometimes entertaining info. So be sure to check back often to stay on top of everything that’s going on with Penn State football and athletics, plus other sports of interest in central PA.

Update: 4:30 p.m.

Penn State redshirt freshman wide receiver John Dunmore has withdrawn from the university and will not play football this season.

“John Dunmore has withdrawn from Penn State this semester for personal reasons,” a PSU spokesperson said in a text message.

Dunmore came to PSU as a four-star recruit from Hollywood, Fla. He appeared in one game last season against Purdue but did not catch any passes.

Dunmore reportedly is not in the transfer portal, so his future remains unclear.

Penn State has some questions to answer at the receiver spot this season, with KJ Hamler now in the NFL. Hamler was far and away the most productive wideout last year. Jahan Dotson figures to be the primary receiver target this season.

Dunmore appeared to be in line to potentially be part of the receiver rotation this season.

Update: 3:15 p.m.

**This young wide receiver is no longer a member of the Penn State team.

Update: 2:05 p.m.

**Penn State had just three positive COVID results out of 1,211 tests during most recent period (Sept.26-Oct. 2). Three results still pending.
The testing numbers, according to PSU, “include the Big Ten’s daily antigen testing protocol for the football program, which began Sept. 30.

Update: 12:30 p.m.

**An excellent story here on college students at Penn State and voting. It’s written by PSU alumna Anna Orso.

One fascinating element of the story is this: A lot of college students apparently have never mailed anything.

Sign of the times in this digital age, obviously. Still, it’s oddly peculiar.

**Penn State hoops recruiting note:

Update: 11 a.m.

**A great note here on how good and consistent Penn State has been in recent years compared to the rest of the country.

Update: 9 a.m.

**James Franklin will speak to the media on a Zoom call after practice later tonight around 6:30 p.m., so be sure to check back then for some updates on the team.

**Results of my poll yesterday:

**Steelers coach Mike Tomlin says stopping RB Miles Sanders will be key to stopping the Eagles’ offense. Tomlin had lots of nice things to say about Sanders, the former PSU standout.
