Penn State Pulls Offer Over Hazing

Penn State has rescinded its scholarship offer to a Sayreville High School senior in light of the New Jersey team’s locker-room sexual harassment. According to Rivals.com, Myles Hartsfield verbally committed to play football for the Nittany Lions and was expected to sign a binding National Letter of Intent in February. “All I know is Penn State is moving on,” said Ryan Snyder of Rivals. “Why they decided to move on, when the offer was pulled, who they’re going after now, I don’t know.” Seven Sayreville players, ages 15 to 17, were charged over the weekend in connection with hazing and aggravated sexual assault. They’re accused of holding down players, inserting a finger into their rectums, and then putting it into their mouths. The accused have not been publicly named. Before criminal charges were filed, Penn State Coach James Franklin confirmed a player from Sayreville committed to the team, but did not reveal his identity or comment on his status. “You guys know just as much as we do at this point,” he said. “We are waiting to hear.”
