Lower Dauphin grad Joey Julius is no longer with the Penn State team.
Julius was the Lions’ kickoff specialist in 2016. PSU spokesman Kris Petersen confirmed Monday that Julius will not be with the 2017 Lions.
Julius did not practice with Penn State in the spring. Julius has been treated for an eating disorder at least twice in the last year.
Julius was the Lions’ primary kickoff specialist last season, averaging 62.1 yards per attempt with 45 touchbacks.
Penn State returns All-Big Ten placekicker Tyler Davis, who made 22 of 24 field goal attempts last season.
Julius made 10 of 12 field-goal attempts in 2015 for Penn State and he converted 20 of 24 extra-point tries.
