Brelin Faison-Walden is leaving the Penn State football program.
The Nittany Lions linebacker and redshirt sophomore announced the news on Sunday night, and said that family heath issues are the reason why he’s transferring to the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
“I have made the decision to come closer to home to look after those I love,” Faison-Walden wrote in a statement posted to social media.
In two years, Faison-Walden played in just one game, as he saw action against Kent State back in September. He was also the coaching staff’s scout team player of the week in November.

Faison-Walden is the second Penn State player to leave the team following the 2018 regular season, as freshman safety Isaiah Humphries has announced his intentions to transfer, as well.
