After seeing four different players find new homes over the past couple of weeks, including starters Jamari Wheeler (Ohio State) and Myreon Jones (Florida), Penn State hoops got a dose of good news today as Seth Lundy officially announced via Instagram that he will be a part of what Micah Shrewsberry intends to build in Happy Valley
This is no doubt tremendous news, especially on the heels of Izaiah Brockington having reaffirmed his commitment to PSU a couple weeks ago. The Lions will retain a guy who averaged double figures in scoring with 10.1 points per game and 4.2 rebounds per game, albeit one who was very hot and cold during the past season. Whatever Shrews and his assistant were selling Lundy on, it must have worked. Look for him to hopefully show more consistency next season as he becomes an even more important piece of the puzzle.
All eyes now shift to John Harrar, who is the lone Nittany Lion still remaining in the portal. Should he also decide to stay in Happy Valley for his final season of eligibility, then Shrews’ first season at Penn State may actually end up being a rather okay one. At the very least, they could avoid playing the role Nebraska has played the last couple years as the Big Ten’s basement dweller.
