Penn State Hoops’ Izaiah Brockington Reenters Transfer Portal

Update, 5:40 p.m. Thursday: Former Penn State men’s basketball star Izaiah Brockington confirmed Thursday night that he’ll reenter the transfer portal.

A 247Sports report Thursday morning stated that Brockington was planning to enter the portal once again after exiting earlier in March, but the Philadelphia native has made the news official with an announcement via Twitter.

“I want to start off by saying thank you to Penn State and Nittany Nation for supporting and cheering me on these past two seasons,” Brockington wrote. “With that said, I have decided to graduate from Penn State this summer and finish my basketball career elsewhere.”

Original Story: The fun in the transfer portal is reportedly not over, folks!

According to a report by 247Sports Thursday morning, Penn State men’s basketball star Izaiah Brockington has reentered the portal. The junior guard previously announced in March that he’d return to Happy Valley to play for Micah Shrewsberry. He was the first of the six players in the portal to decide to stay with the Nittany Lions.

Brockington’s earlier decision to play for Shrewsberry was a big one, especially considering he averaged 12.6 points and 4.9 rebounds per game last season. The St. Bonaventure transfer started in all but one of Penn State’s games this year, and averaged 8.1 points in the season prior.

Seth Lundy and John Harrar were the other Nittany Lions who elected to remove their names from the portal. Lundy’s decision was made public last week, while Harrar announced he’d stay at Penn State on Wednesday.

If Brockington is in fact in the portal, he remains the only player with his future up in the air for next season. Harrar and Lundy are back, but Myreon Jones (Florida), Jamari Wheeler (Ohio State), and Trent Buttrick (UMass) are all headed elsewhere via the transfer portal.

Brockington has not yet confirmed his decision to reenter the portal, but we’ll update this post with more information as it becomes available.
