Four-Star Small Forward Lamar Stevens Commits To Penn State

Pennsylvania’s No. 2 recruit committed to Penn State Hoops today and became Pat Chambers’ most recent big-time pickup. Four-star small forward Lamar Stevens from Roman Catholic chose Penn State over the other 12 offers he received. In fact, a few weeks before his commitment, 247 Sports predicted an 86 percent chance that he would choose Indiana, but soon before his announcement it changed to a 45 percent chance that he’d pick Penn State, and ultimately this morning set it at 95 percent. Earlier this year, he tweeted his top eight options, and Penn State was indeed among them.

247 also ranks him as the 77th-best player in the nation and the 14th-best small forward. Standing at 6’6 and weighing in at 190 pounds, Stevens should be able to step in and become another positive display of Pat Chambers’ recent recruiting prowess, and help Penn State be as competitive as it has been in years.

Stevens joins Pennsylvania’s No. 1 recruit Tony Carr as Penn State’s most recent commits. Carr and Nazeer Bostick were rumored to be recruiting Stevens so the three could play together in college, and with Carr and Bostick already on board, it was a matter of time until Stevens joined too. Pat Chambers’ recruiting may have resulted in Penn State having its own young Big Three that could stick with the program for the coming years.

The hurt of a disappointing season coinciding with the departure of one of the program’s best players ever is fading away as Pat Chambers highlights his greatest strength, recruiting. Welcome to the team, Lamar.
