The side effects from the NCAA sanctions to the Penn State football program took another toll on the future of the Nittany Lions Tuesday, as a report from Scout's Brian Dohn says linebacker recruit Zach Bradshaw has decommited. Bradshaw's decommitment is the third for the Nittany Lions since the announcement of the NCAA penalties.
Overall, Penn State has lost four recruits since the release of the Freesh Report, and nine players due to transfers. Just a few days ago, the Nittany Lions lost wide receiver Justin Brown to the Oklahoma Sooners. Penn State's Class of 2013 now includes just 10 players, including QB Christian Hackenberg, tight end Adam Breneman and offensive tackle Dorian Johnson.
Bradshaw is expected to reconsider schools such as Virginia, Michigan State and Northwestern.
