Forward Abdou Tsimbila Commits To Penn State Hoops

Pat Chambers landed his second recruit of the 2019 cycle on Tuesday night with the commitment of forward Abdou Tsimbila.

According to 247 Sports, Tsimbila was offered by the Nittany Lions on May 5, following offers from Towson and George Mason, among others. Tsimbila does not have a star-ranking on the site. Coming in at 6’8″ and 220 pounds, he certainly seems to have a frame that could allow him to find success in college.

Tsimbila plays his high school ball at St. Maria Goretti in Hagerstown, Maryland. He joins Patrick Kelly, who committed in February, in Chambers’ 2019 recruiting class.

Chambers and his staff have a lot of work to do on the recruiting trail to continue to develop a competitive squad for the coming seasons. With the departure of Tony Carr to the NBA draft and Nazeer Bostick’s announcement of his intent to transfer, two-thirds of Chambers’ most prestigious recruiting class has now moved on from Happy Valley.
