Rasir Bolton Will Transfer To Iowa State
Former Penn State men’s basketball guard Rasir Bolton is set to move away from the Nittany Lions and join Iowa State, as first reported by Jon Rothstein.
Bolton began his process of leaving the Nittany Lions by entering the NCAA’s transfer portal on April 26. His career in Happy Valley definitely got off to a promising start. The guard became one of Pat Chambers’ most reliable options off the bench as a freshman, scoring 11.6 points per game and posting an 87.6 conversion rate on free throws.
The only Penn State player to outscore Bolton on a per-game basis during the 2018-19 season was star forward Lamar Stevens, who led Penn State with 19.9 points per game. Josh Reaves’ departure after finishing his four years of eligibility leaves a starting guard spot open alongside the likes of Jamari Wheeler and Myles Dread, and Bolton appeared to be a top candidate to fill that starting role.
Other than Wheeler and Dread, Penn State’s other options at guard for the 2019-20 season include Myreon Jones, Daniil Kasatkin, and Kyle McCloskey. The program’s incoming class of recruits doesn’t feature any guards, but the Nittany Lions will welcome forwards Seth Lundy and Patrick Kelly along with big man Abdou Tsimbila.

“The program is better than its [sic] ever been. If commits truly don’t want to be committed to the best fan base and the best coaching staff in the country, it’s their issue, not ours.”
Penn State strengthened its 2020 recruiting class once again on Saturday when it landed a commitment from four-star defensive tackle Fatorma Mulbah.
