Penn State Hoops’ Three-Star Signee Braeden Shrewsberry Requests Release, Will Play At Notre Dame

The dominos are beginning to rapidly fall for Penn State men’s basketball after Micah Shrewsberry’s departure.

As expected, former three-star signee Braeden Shrewsberry requested his release from the Nittany Lions’ program. The 6’2”, 170-pound shooting guard will follow his father to South Bend to begin his collegiate career with Notre Dame, Micah Shrewsberry announced in his introductory press conference Thursday afternoon.

“My two boys, Braeden and Nick,” Micah Shrewsberry remarked on Thursday. “Braeden, [his] future home here, gets a chance to get up and shoot some threes here at the Joyce Center.”

During his senior campaign at State College Area High School, Shrewsberry excelled for the Little Lions, highlighted by averaging 17.7 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 3.8 assists per game across 26 matchups. 

Before finishing the latter part of his high school tenure in Pennsylvania, the former Penn State head coach’s son began to generate traction on the recruiting trail at West Lafayette High School, just one mile north of Purdue’s campus. 

Ultimately, Shrewsberry compiled three other offers than Penn State, marked by George Washington, Saint Joseph’s, and Xavier. 

Shrewsberry’s release now stands as the final recruit intending to leave the Nittany Lions’ three-man class. Four-star post commodity Carey Booth filed his scholarship release on March 23. Moreover, 6’4” combo guard Logan Imes requested his release on March 28.
