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.

Welcome, Seth Lundy!

Penn State keeps the Philadelphia pipeline open with a commitment from 6-6 small forward Seth Lundy of Roman Catholic High School.

Lundy is one of the highest-rated recruits to sign with Penn State since the Nittany Lions joined the Big 10 in 1994.

Welcome, Myreon Jones

Myreon Jones, a 6-3 guard from Birmingham, AL, who prepped at Lincoln Academy in Suwannee, GA, has committed to Penn State and is set to enroll in the fall.

Jones is an interesting story. He is ranked the No. 81 player in the country by 247 (which makes him one of Coach Chambers’ highest-ranked recruits), but somewhat lower by other services. (See Roar Lions Roar for good background.) He committed to Memphis in the spring but was released from that commitment when Memphis whacked Tubby.

Meyer was so high on Jones that 247 briefly had him ranked a 5-star prospect.

Jones is an outstanding student, registering a 4-plus GPA at Huffman High in Alabama before transferring to Lincoln Academy.

Intriguing prospect, to say the least.

Welcome, Izaiah Brockington

Izaiah Brockington, a Philadelphia Archbishop Ryan alumnus who just completed his freshman season at St. Bonaventure, announced that he was transferring to Penn State. The 6-4 guard will sit out a year and have three years’ eligibility remaining.
