Nittany Lions Add Recruit, Home Game Against Maryland

Two good tidings of great joy for Penn State basketball fans in one post?! Crazy and unprecedented, but it is the case today.

First, it was announced that the Lions have added recruit Johnathan Graham, a 6’8 power forward out of Baltimore. The Nittany Lions needed someone to fill the paint, and while Graham might not the cream of the recruiting crop, he’s certainly no slouch. Rated a 3-star recruit by Rivals.com and given a grade of 86 by ESPN, he averaged 18 points and 10 rebounds as a senior at Calvert Hall High School and graduated as the school’s second-leading scorer at 1,670 points. With a year of watching the trio of Brooks, Jackson, and Jones (and learning from every one of their mistakes), Graham will hopefully develop into a strong player during his time in Happy Valley.

Also, the annual ACC/Big Ten Challenge schedule was released this week, and Penn State has drawn the defending ACC regular season champion Maryland for this year’s matchup. The game will be played December 1st at the Bryce Jordan Center. Penn State became the first Big Ten team to win three straight Challenge games last year and will hope to continue that success when the Terps come calling this year.
