Western Michigan Grad Transfer Greg Lee Commits To Penn State Hoops

Have yourself a weekend, Micah Shrewsberry.

Penn State men’s basketball picked up its second commitment of the last four days Sunday afternoon. Western Michigan forward Greg Lee announced his transfer to Shrewsberry’s program via Instagram.

Lee entered the transfer portal after a season at Western Michigan. He had a productive 2020-21 campaign for the Broncos, as he averaged 13 points and 7.8 rebounds per game. Western Michigan struggled in the MAC with a 5-16 overall record, but Lee was a standout big man throughout his senior season. The 6’9″ forward even led the team with four double-doubles on the year.

The Houston, Texas native will join Penn State as a grad transfer, as he spent his first three seasons of college hoops at Cal State Bakersfield. He played in 92 games for the Roadrunners, including 46 career starts. In his final season out west, Lee started in 21 games and averaged 6.7 points.

Lee initially announced this past March that he’d return to Western Michigan for his final season, but he officially entered the portal on April 19. According to his Twitter account, Lee was also considering a transfer to Arkansas, Illinois, and Fordham, among others.

The forward’s size and scoring ability will be a welcomed sight to the Bryce Jordan Center next season, as John Harrar was virtually the Nittany Lions’ only option in the paint for most of the 2020-21 season.
