Former Penn State Hoops Forward Trent Buttrick To Transfer To UMass

Former Penn State men’s basketball forward Trent Buttrick has officially found a new home. The 6’8″ big man will use his extra year of eligibility to play for the University of Massachusetts.

“First of all, I would like to thank Penn State University for the opportunity to become a student-athlete,” Buttrick said. “These past four years have been nothing short of unforgettable. Nittany Nation has welcomed me since the day I stepped foot on campus, and for that I am grateful. I will always be a Nittany Lion at heart.”

He also thanked former head coach Pat Chambers for “giving me a chance and believing in me.”

Buttrick had a career year during his senior season with the Nittany Lions. He played in 25 games, averaging three points and three rebounds per game. His electric Senior Night performance was the best game of his career, as he logged 13 points and seven rebounds.

He is the second player to officially transfer out of Penn State, following Jamari Wheeler’s decision to transfer to Ohio State. There are three Nittany Lions reportedly still in the transfer portal, including stars John Harrar and Seth Lundy. It remains to be seen if they will follow Buttrick and Wheeler in transferring out or stay with the program like Izaiah Brockington.
