Welcome, DJ Gordon

Penn State gets a really important commitment from DJ Gordon, a long SG with a rep as a tenacious defender.

“D.J. is one of the toughest players I’ve been around,” Team Final director Aaron Burt said. “He was injured all spring and summer and never complained. He competed like he was fighting for minutes every day. 

“He’s super athletic, competitive and coachable. He has all the tools to be an elite defender and an explosive scorer. His toughness and passion is second to none.”

Welcome, Curtis Jones

Curtis Jones, a 6-4 combo guard who averaged 8 points for Oklahoma State last season, has committed to Penn State as a grad transfer.

Jones began his career at Indiana. He was a four-star recruit in high school who was known for his shooting. Blue White Illustrated caught up with two analysts who discussed Jones’s game.

Jones is from the DMV,  and keeps Penn State active in that fertile area. Incoming freshman Abdou Tsimbila and rising sophomore Myles Dread played in D.C.
