Justin Brown, the senior wide receiver transferring from Penn State to Oklahoma, was set to arrive in Oklahoma City on Monday evening to take his place on the Sooners' roster.

From an airport, Brown tweeted Monday afternoon, “Next stop .. Okc.”

Oklahoma resumed practices Monday morning without Brown; coach Bob Stoops said he couldn't comment on his transfer until he actually arrives.

“I don't think I'm allowed to speak on that until he's here,” Stoops said. “Just like recruiting.”

Quarterback Landry Jones, though, did briefly comment when asked about Brown.

“That's nice ... yeah,” Jones said. “We're excited about him coming in.”

Brown (6-foot-3, 210 pounds) would have been the Nittany Lions' top returning wide receiver. He decided to transfer, along with eight other Penn State players, after the NCAA handed down its tough sanctions in response to the recent child-abuse scandal.

MCGEE QUITS TEAM

True freshman offensive guard John Michael McGee, from Texarkana, Texas, has already left the team, according to his Twitter account.

“Goodluck to OU on the field I'll be watching,” McGee tweeted. “It's just not for me.”

Stoops said after practice that McGee had been given the day off because he was homesick.

“He's contemplating whether he wants to play or not,” Stoops said. “We told him to take the day off and figure all that out.”
