Penn State Hoops’ Dallion Johnson Transfers To Florida Gulf Coast

The first Penn State men’s basketball player to hit the transfer portal announced his new landing spot on Wednesday afternoon. Dallion Johnson will head south and transfer to Florida Gulf Coast and play under former Penn State head coach Pat Chambers.

Johnson, a 6’3″ guard, has two years of eligibility remaining.

Johnson appeared in 23 games throughout the 2022-23 season but posted minimal minutes throughout his junior season. He recorded a season-high eight points against Loyola Maryland in November and maxed out at 17 minutes in the Nittany Lions’ season opener against Winthrop.

Over the course of his three seasons in Happy Valley, Johnson averaged 2.6 points per game across a total of 158 points. The once-three-star recruit from Haverhill, Massachusetts, committed to Chambers and Penn State in 2019 as the second-highest-ranked shooting guard prospect in Massachusetts. Johnson chose the Nittany Lions over offers from Rutgers, Davidson, Northeastern, and Brown, among others.

Penn State’s Evan Mahaffey, Jameel Brown, and Kebba Njie remain in the transfer portal, while Caleb Dorsey announced his transfer to William and Mary on March 10. Newly hired Penn State hoops head coach Mike Rhoades secured the commitment of Ace Baldwin Jr. to the program on April 9, Baldwin will join Kanye Clary and Demetrius Lilley as the remaining scholarship players who have yet to hit the portal.
