Freshman Guard Graham Woodward to Transfer from Penn State

Penn State basketball suffered an unexpected loss today, as it was announced that freshman guard Graham Woodward will transfer. In order to accommodate this, Woodward was released from his scholarship.

Woodward showed flashes of potential in his one season for the Nittany Lions, as the Minnesota native averaged 2.8 points per game and shot 39 percent from three, the highest percentage on the team. He appeared in 31 of the team’s 34 games, and even started six games at point guard.

“Graham has made the decision to continue his playing career elsewhere,” head coach Pat Chambers said in a release via GoPSUSports. “He is a tough, hard-working player and a great young man; we wish him the best moving forward.”

There is no word as to why Woodward is transferring, or what school he is transferring to. Unfortunately, this is not out of the ordinary for Penn State hoops, as four players — Jermaine Marshall, Jonathan Graham, Patrick Ackerman, and Akosa Maduegbunam — transferred during the offseason last year.

Woodward’s departure opens up a scholarship for Chambers to use on an incoming freshman, a transfer student, or a walk-on who Chambers feels deserves a scholarship. Penn State currently has two open scholarships for next year.
