Penn State Hoops Adds Grad Transfers Camren Wynter & Andrew Funk

Penn State men’s basketball bolstered its 2022-23 roster on Thursday by receiving commitments from graduate transfers Camren Wynter and Andrew Funk.

Wynter, a 6’2″ guard New York native, averaged 15.8 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 4.6 assists per game last season for the Dragons. He averaged double-digit points in all four of his seasons with the Dragons, including a career-best 16.3 points per game in the 2020-21 campaign when he led Drexel to the NCAA Tournament.

Once entering the transfer portal, Wynter was heavily recruited. He had been in contact with programs such as Purdue, Ohio State, LSU, North Carolina State, Michigan, Florida, and Arkansas, among other schools. He ended up staying in Pennsylvania and provides a lot of offense for head coach Micah Shrewsberry and company.

Funk, a 6’5″ guard, averaged 17.6 points, 3.6 rebounds, and three assists per game in his last season for the Bucknell Bison. His points and assists per game totals were career-highs.

The Nittany Lions get another much-needed scorer in Funk, who shot 43% from the field last season. He also provides a nice boost from behind the arc, shooting 36% from three last year. With the offense being the biggest issue for the Nittany Lions, Funk should certainly serve as a shot in the arm.

Both Wynter and Funk led their respective teams in scoring last season, which sets big expectations for how they might perform for Penn State next fall.
