Three-Star Center Elijah Hutchins-Everett Commits To Penn State Hoops

Three-star center Elijah Hutchins-Everett officially committed to Penn State men’s basketball Monday afternoon. He chose the Nittany Lions over Villanova, Syracuse, and Minnesota, among others.

Hutchins-Everett verbally committed to the team in July before making things official Monday. The 6′ 8″ big man is ranked the No. 182 player in the Class of 2021, according to 247Sports.

Hutchins-Everett played at Putnam Science Academy in Orange, New Jersey. In the 2017-2018 season, he averaged 11.7 points 7.8 rebounds per game.

With big man John Harrar entering his senior year this season, Hutchins-Everett will likely receive more playing time once he arrives on campus. He could provide an inside presence that Mike Watkins gave the Nittany Lions in the 2019-2020 season.

Hutchins-Everett joins guard Houston Mallett and forward TaQuan Woodley as the Nittany Lions’ only recruits from the Class of 2021.
