Penn State transfer: Safety Tim Buckley first to leave program

Penn State safety Tim Buckley will transfer to N.C. State, becoming the first player to leave the Nittany Lions since the NCAA announced sanctions against the team, reports the News & Observer's Joe Giglio.

Buckley redshirted last season for the Nittany Lions. He will be able to play immediately and have four years of eligibility left.

Giglio reports that Buckley, a Raleigh native, was recruited by N.C. State out of high school but decided to walk-on at Penn State, ultimately earning a scholarship. Buckley will likely be a backup for the Wolfpack, who return both of their starting safeties, Giglio reports.

Although it does not appear that there will be a mass exodus from Penn State, the Nittany Lions could still lose other players in the next week or two. Star running back Silas Redd is reportedly leaning toward transferring to USC.
