PENN STATE kicker-punter Anthony Fera is bolting for Texas. He is the second starter to depart Happy Valley this week following harsh NCAA sanctions against the program for the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal.
Fera has submitted paperwork to enroll at Texas this season, said a person with knowledge of the decision who requested anonymity because Texas has not yet announced the move. Penn State announced Thursday that Fera was no longer on its roster.
The junior with the powerful right leg was one of the top specialists in the Big Ten after hitting 14 of 17 field-goal tries and averaging 42 yards a punt last season.
