Another big name will be returning for Penn State. John Harrar entered his name into the Transfer Portal when new Coach Micah Shrewsberry came to Town, but this week his mind has changed. Harrar has decided to remove his name from the portal and stay one more year in Happy Valley. He joins Seth Lundy as those who will stay in the Blue and White. The Senior was exceptional last season averaging over 8 points and 8 rebounds per game. His 94 offensive rebounds were third best in the Big Ten. This will be his 5th year for the Nittany Lions.
Some potential bad news for the new incoming Coach: after originally pulling his name from the Transfer Portal, Izaiah Brockington has now reentered as of Thursday morning. He originally entered his name back on March 16th then rescinded after talking with Shrewsberry. Brockington averaged over 12 points and 4 rebounds a game last year for the Nittany Lions.
Shrewsberry continues to add to his staff. On Thursday, it was announced that Mike Green will be the Director of Player Development and Brian Snow will be the Director of Recruiting. Green played his College ball at Butler and Towson before he spent the past decade playing in Europe. Snow has spent the last 11 years working for the recruiting websites of 24/7 Sports and Scout.
