Penn State Hoops’ Kebba Njie Transfers To Notre Dame

Former Penn State men’s basketball head coach Micah Shrewsberry secured his first transfer from his previous program.

Freshman big man Kebba Njie announced his commitment to Notre Dame on Saturday on Twitter after entering the transfer portal on April 3.

Njie turned into an integral part of the Nittany Lions’ starting lineup and earned 26 starts through 37 appearances in his freshman season. Although Njie held the weight of a four-star status on his back, the freshman fell into place at the end of Penn State’s regular-season schedule and throughout its postseason run into March.

Njie averaged 3.4 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 14.3 minutes per game in his college rookie season. He posted a career-high nine rebounds, two steals, and 26 minutes of playing time during Penn State’s Big Ten Tournament matchup with then-No. 19 Indiana on March 11.

A 6’10”, Centerville, Ohio, native, Njie ranks as the third-highest-ranked Penn State hoops recruit behind Tony Carr and Lamar Stevens. Shrewsberry’s first recruiting class ranked 27th nationally, according to 247Sports, and was highlighted by Njie.

Now, the rising sophomore will head west to reconnect with Shrewsberry and once-fellow Nittany Lion signee Braeden Shrewsberry at Notre Dame.
