Four-Star Center Kebba Njie Commits To Penn State Hoops

Penn State men’s basketball has added its fourth recruit to its Class of 2022.

Four-star center Kebba Njie committed to the Nittany Lions Saturday afternoon. According to 247Sports’ composite rankings, he’s currently the second-highest rated commit in program history.

“First of all, I want to thank God for his unconditional love for me and for putting me into the position I’m in today,” Njie said in a Twitter post. “Thank you to all the Coaches who have helped me with my basketball career so far from back at home and here at Lalu.”

“This was a very tough decision and I’m really blessed to have great schools who wanted me to come to their program,” he continued.” But with that being said, I am excited to announce that I am committing to Penn State!”

The 6’8″, 205-pound center is ranked No. 104 in the country, and he’s the fourth-best player from his home state of Indiana. He visited Penn State on September 10, which was his last official visit before announcing his decision.

Njie held offers from Butler and Kansas State, and he visited those schools earlier in the summer. Presumably, it was head coach Micah Shrewsberry’s connections in Indiana that locked down Njie’s commitment.

He joins Jameel Brown, Evan Mahaffey, and Kanye Clary as members of Shrewsberry’s Class of 2022. It is an important addition as well, since he provides much-needed size with the departure of John Harrar and Greg Lee looming in the near future.
