STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - There was a time at Penn State, not so long ago, when the loss of a high school linebacker recruit - no matter how decorated - would barely be noticed on the depth chart the following fall.
But not this year at Linebacker U. Not with the Nittany Lions' scholarship roster cut because of NCAA sanctions.
Coach Bill O'Brien will be down a player who had the potential for contributing right away in Central Dauphin linebacker Zayd Issah, because of an off-field issue.
O'Brien said Wednesday in an interview with The Associated Press that Issah would not play at Penn State this fall, but eventually could wind up in Happy Valley. He said he was in discussions with Issah and his family about the senior's next move.
