Penn State Hoops Adds Three-Star Forward Abdou Tsimbila
Penn State men’s basketball’s roster grew once again Monday when it added forward Abdou Tsimbila to the team.
Originally from Yaoundé, Cameroon, Tsimbila studied at Harcum College during the 2019-20 academic year. The 6′ 8″ . 220-pound forward did not play in any collegiate sports while enrolled at Harcum.
He played high school basketball at St. Maria Goretti High School in Hagerstown, Maryland. As a senior, Tsimbila averaged 10.2 points, eight rebounds, and 2.9 blocks per game, which led the league. He earned first-team All-Washington County honors in his junior and senior seasons.
Tsimbila joins new recruits Caleb Dorsey, D.J. Gordon, Dallion Johnson, and Valdir Manuel in joining the Nittany Lions’ roster this fall. The team will attempt to build on a breakout 2019-2020 season and get back to its winning ways this season after its recent success was cut short.
