NEW YORK (AP) - Penn State starting quarterback Matt McGloin has tweeted that he intends to stay with the Nittany Lions.

McGloin tweeted that the penalties announced by the NCAA on Monday were “extremely harsh.”

“I am a Nittany Lion and will remain one.” he also tweeted. “I believe in the core values I have learned in this program. It is not Nittany Lion Football. It is Nittany Lion family.”

Penn State players are allowed by the NCAA to transfer to another school without sitting out a year.

McGloin, a former walk-on, was given the starting job last month by coach Bill O’Brien.

He completed just 54 percent of his passes last season, and missed the TicketCity Bowl vs. Houston _ a 30-14 loss _ after sustaining a concussion in a locker-room scuffle with a teammate.
