Penn State Recruiting: S Tim Buckley Transfers To N.C. State

Penn State has lost its first current player since the sanctions over the Jerry Sandusky scandal were placed on the school by the NCAA. Redshirt freshman safety Tim Buckley has transferred to N.C. State, Wolfpack head coach Tom O'Brien announced on Monday (via N.C. State).

Buckley will have four years of eligibility remaining and will be able to play immediately for N.C. State. He was listed as a backup at free safety for Penn State following spring practice.

Buckley said about joining the Wolfpack, "I am excited to be a member of the NC State Wolfpack. The opportunity to come here and play at my state university, so close to home, was something that I couldn't pass up." Buckley is a native of Raleigh, North Carolina, and played at Cardinal Gibbons HS.
