It's not often the departure of a kickoff specialist earns headlines, but Joey Julius' exit from Penn State is a rare exception. Bob Flounders of PennLive.com reported Monday afternoon that the 5-foot-10, 258-pounder from Hummelstown, Pennsylvania, has left the program prior to the start of his senior season in Happy Valley. A Penn State spokesperson later confirmed to 247Sports that Julius is off the roster. Julius became a viral sensation during his Nittany Lions' career with his ability to get down the field and lay vicious hits on unsuspecting returners who took the kicker lightly.
