Report: Jordan Dickerson Transferring to Penn State

According to his mentor, big man Jordan Dickerson of Brooklyn is transferring to Penn State from Southern Methodist University.

At a massive 7′ 0” and 240 lbs, Dickerson is the center that Penn State has been searching for. In his freshman season at SMU, he played in 26 games, averaging about 3.5 minutes per game. He scored a total of 13 points throughout the season and added 23 rebounds and 9 blocks.

Although he didn’t see much time on the floor during his first year, he averaged  7 rebounds and 7 blocks per game as a high school senior. That year, his team went 28-3 and finished as a top 50 team in the country.

In addition, at IMG Prep School, he averaged 10 points, 8 rebounds and 4 blocks as the team went 28-2.

He should be able to enter the rotation as a redshirt sophomore in ’14.

With the recent shuffle of players and coaches, this addition to the team should serve as a solid start to building up the front court for Penn State basketball.
