Even with Jacobs Yaffa out, The Nittany Lions appear to have no scholarships available for next season. Transfers, graduations, other issues can and usually do change that number in the spring for all schools.
Pat Chambers and his staff at Penn State got great news on the first day of February when they landed the commitment from 2019 versatile forward, Patrick Kelly. Kelly is the first commitment to the 2019 class for the Nittany Lions. Kelly is a guy that can shoot very well, rebound and does all the little things well to help his team win. Kelly chose Penn State over of Grand Canyon, UNLV, Providence and Richmond. He spoke to us on his trust he has with Coach Chambers and his staff.
“Coach Chambers and his staff believe in me and I think I would be a great fit in their program.”
When asked how he will be used at Penn State, he said, “I will be a 3/4 and will make plays around my strengths.”
He said that Penn State fans should, “expect a competitor that will do whatever it takes to win.”
John Harrar had committed to Army to play football, but Penn State offered the 6-9, 230-pound power forward a basketball scholarship two weeks ago, and UCONN followed with an offer in the last few days.
