Woodward, a rising redshirt freshman, will sit out for a season before having three years of eligibility for the Bulldogs. He averaged 12.5 minutes per game last season, finishing with 88 points and a 23-59 (.390) mark from beyond the arc. A Minnesota native, Woodward only lasted a year with the Nittany Lions before jumping ship to Des Moines, Iowa. According to David Jones of PennLive, Chambers said he transferred because he wanted to be a full-time point guard.
Penn State is slated to have four guards next season: Rising seniors D.J. Newbill and John Johnson, rising sophomore Geno Thorpe, and incoming freshmen Isaiah Washington and Shep Garner. Johnson and Thorpe will probably see some competition from the highly touted Garner for the majority of the minutes in the role.
