STAMFORD - Another Penn State football player from Connecticut says he is leaving the university and going to California.

In a statement released today, Khairi Fortt says he loved Cal when he visited while he was recruited in high school in Stamford, and he will miss Penn State.

Fortt is the fourth player to leave Penn State, and the second from Connecticut, in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.
