Myles Dread To Return To Penn State Hoops For 2022-23 Season

Hours after picking up a Class of 2023 recruit, Micah Shrewsberry’s program received another boost from a veteran staple.

Penn State guard Myles Dread announced his intentions to spend his last year of eligibility with the Nittany Lions, according to a post on his Instagram page. The Detriot native recently concluded his fourth year in Happy Valley while playing through a shoulder injury.

“I will be returning to Penn State to utilize my extra year of eligibility,” Dread wrote. “I look forward to leading this team and giving everything I have as we set out to accomplish our goals.”

Following the Nittany Lions’ run in the Big Ten Tournament in early March, Dread immediately underwent surgery on a “severely torn labrum” on his shooting shoulder. Dread still played all 31 games under the guidance and supervision of the team’s medical staff.

Over the course of his senior year, Dread started 20 games while logging 27 minutes per contest. Despite dealing with a nagging shoulder, the established three-point specialist notched 6.2 points per game with a shooting percentage of over 40% from beyond the arc.

Across four seasons, Dread has played in 117 games, with his most consistent output coming in his sophomore campaign. With an 8.6 points-per-game scoring mark as a sophomore, Dread served as a key wingman to Lamar Stevens and Myreon Jones in leading the Nittany Lions to a 22-10 regular-season record in which the squad rose as high as No. 9 in the AP Top 25 Poll.

Next season, Dread will lead Shrewsberry’s new-look squad defined by key departures in John Harrar, Sam Sessoms, and several first-year transfers who recently finished their careers in Happy Valley. However, with the return of Jalen Pickett and the addition of the program’s highest ranked recuriting class in school history, Dread will have the opportunity to lead the Nittany Lions into uncharted waters next fall.
