Penn State Men’s Basketball Welcomes Two Class Of 2018 Recruits In Early Signing Period

Class of 2018 verbal commits Rasir Bolton and Myles Dread signed their national letters of intent to become Nittany Lions on the first day of basketball’s early signing period.

Rasir Bolton is a three-star point guard out of Virginia. The 6-foot-3 recruit originally committed to Penn State back in July after earning MVP honors on his way to taking his AAU team, Team Loaded VA, to a title on the Adidas Select Series’ stop in Richmond. Pat Chambers noted that Bolton is an “explosive” players that can read the game well and can shoot.

Myles Dread is another three-star player who can get on the floor as a shooting guard or small forward. The 6-foot-4 Gonzaga High School (D.C.) star has had his sights set on Happy Valley since verbally committing back in July of 2016. Chambers said that he’s versatile and should “fit really well in our system.”

Last week, Penn State received a verbal commitment from a third member of the 2018 class, three-star center Tolu Jacobs. The early signing period continues through Wednesday, November 15, then will reopen in April.  .
