Three-Star Guard Braeden Shrewsberry Commits To Penn State Hoops

It’s safe to say the first addition to Penn State men’s basketball’s 2023 recruiting class is already a member of the Nittany Lions’ family.

Braeden Shrewsberry, the son of head coach Micah Shrewsberry, announced Wednesday via Twitter that he’s sticking in Happy Valley to play college basketball.

Although he attended Indiana’s West Lafayette High School his freshman and sophomore years, Shrewsberry now attends State College Area High School. He transferred when his dad left his role at Purdue to become Penn State’s head coach.

The 6-foot-3, 180-pound guard is listed as the No. 8 prospect in the state of Pennsylvania by 247Sports for the 2023 recruiting cycle. Although he doesn’t have a composite ranking, 247 slots him as a three-star recruit.

Shrewsberry chose Penn State over in-state foe St. Joseph’s, as well as George Washington and Xavier. As you would expect, he was directly recruited by Micah Shrewsberry.
