South Plains College Forward Jevonnie Scott Commits To Penn State Hoops

The Shrew cannot be tamed.

Penn State men’s basketball picked up yet another commitment Thursday afternoon. Jevonnie Scott’s former squad, South Plains College, announced via Twitter that he’ll join Micah Shrewsberry’s program.

The 6’7″ forward from Toronto has spent his last two years at South Plains College, a community college in Levelland, Texas. He’s been a force for the Texans of late, as he averaged 11.5 points per game and 5.6 rebounds this past season. Scott helped the Texans to an 18-3 overall record and 12-3 mark in conference play.

During his first season in Texas, Scott averaged 8.1 points and 4.1 blocks and started in nine games. According to his profile on 247Sports, the big man originally committed to Texas A&M in January, but eventually decided to join the newly hired Shrewsberry and his staff.

Penn State picked up two commitments last week via the transfer portal from Jaheam Cornwall and Jalen Pickett. Both of those players are guards, however, so Scott will bring some much-needed size to the Nittany Lions. The most notable big man left on the roster is John Harrar, who has a wealth of experience. Abdou Tsimbila is the only other player who has much of any time down low for Penn State.

To see what he’ll bring to the Bryce Jordan Center, check out Scott’s highlights from his senior year at Orangeville Prep in Ontario here.
