Penn State Hoops’ Seth Lundy Declaring For 2023 NBA Draft
Update, 4:10 p.m.: Seth Lundy confirmed that he’s forgoing his extra year of eligibility and entering the 2023 NBA Draft.
“I am forever grateful to all my coaches and coaching staffs past and present who helped guide me, develop me and help me become a better person both on and off the court,” Lundy wrote. “Thank you to my teammates who made these past four years unforgettable.”
“My time at Penn State has been nothing short of a blessing,” he continued. “I’ve cherished every moment and will always call this place home.”
Original Story: Penn State men’s basketball’s Seth Lundy is reportedly moving on.
According to CBS Sports college basketball insider Jon Rothstein, Lundy is entering the 2023 NBA Draft after four years with the program. Lundy could’ve stayed another year, as he has an extra season of eligibility due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but he’ll reportedly head to the next level.
Lundy served as a defensive anchor and a reliable three-point shooter for Micah Shrewsberry’s squad this past season. He averaged a career-high 14.2 points and 6.3 rebounds per game during the 2022-23 season while shooting 40% from three-point range.
The New Jersey native has served as a staple for the Nittany Lions ever since arriving in Happy Valley back in 2019. When a handful of players entered the transfer portal following the 2020-21 season, Lundy was one of the very few to stay, despite originally throwing his name into the portal.
Following Penn State’s season-ending loss to No. 2-seeded Texas, Shrewsberry called Myles Dread and Lundy “my guys forever” for taking a chance on him.
“Seth and Myles, they didn’t have to stay,” Shrewsberry said. “They chose the hard route. There were two routes to take — there was an easy route and there was a hard route. They chose the hard route.”
If Lundy does end up officially declaring for the draft, he’ll join key pieces like Jalen Pickett, Myles Dread, Andrew Funk, and Cam Wynter in their exits from the program.
