Anderson, three others, off Penn State football roster

Four Penn State players, including wide receiver Richy Anderson, have left the football program and are no longer on the roster, a team spokesman confirmed Friday.

The spokesman said Anderson and walk-on quarterback Austin Whipple plan to transfer. He said wide receiver Jonathan Warner and offensive lineman Anthony Alosi will remain at Penn State.

Alosi, who played his high school ball at Cherokee in South Jersey, is on schedule to graduate in August.

“We thank them for their contributions to the program and wish them well in their future academic and athletic endeavors,” Penn State coach James Franklin said in a statement.

More coverage

Anderson, son of former Nittany Lions wide receiver Richie Anderson, saw action in 11 games last season as a true freshman. He caught 13 passes for 111 yards.

Warner, son of college football Hall of Fame member Curt Warner, the former Penn State running back, redshirted in 2012 as a freshman and played in two games last season.

Alosi played sparingly last season and was suspended from the team last spring after being charged with simple assault in an altercation.

Whipple was brought on as a walk-on by coach Bill O’Brien last season to improve depth at quarterback and redshirted. His father, Mark Whipple, is head coach at Massachusetts.
