Report: George Campbell won’t enroll at Penn State

Former Florida State wide receiver George Campbell entered his name into the Transfer Portal back in January before officially announcing his decision to finish his college career at Penn State on February 20. Now, those plans have changed. According to 247Sports, Campbell will not be enrolling at Penn State this summer or joining the team for the 2019 season. The report goes on to state that he’s currently trying to find another school to play at in the fall.

Currently, the reason for Campbell and the Nittany Lions split is unknown. Though, Kevin McGuire of College Football Talk mentioned that the 6-foot-4 wide receiver may have not been admitted to Penn State’s graduate program.

Bad luck has been the epitome of Campbell’s career. He was oft-injured in Tallahassee and finished his time at FSU with just 13 catches for 206 yards and zero touchdowns despite being one of the most highly-regarded prospects in the 2015 class. Now, his plans to finish his career at Penn State have likely been derailed. His luck has got to turn eventually, right?

On the bright side, I know of one school that’s pursuing former ‘Noles like they’re candy. Florida Atlantic. The Owls have already added Deondre Francois to their roster and have been mentioned in the final four for running back Amir Rasul. This just speculation, but the fit would make sense for Campbell. He’d stay in his home state. not too far from his hometown. and be able to finish his collegiate career with one of his friends from his prep days in Francois.
