Report: Penn State Hoops Forward Jameel Brown Enters Transfer Portal

Penn State men’s basketball forward Jameel Brown has entered the transfer portal, according to Verbal Commits. Brown was the fifth Nittany Lion to hit the portal, after Favour Aire, Kanye Clary, Bragi Guðmundsson, and Demetrius Lilley.

Brown was the one of three Penn State players to play under first-year head coach Mike Rhoades after committing to, and playing for, former head coach Micah Shrewsberry. With the departure of Brown, Lilley, and Clary, none of those players will remain in Happy Valley next year.

Brown spent two seasons at Penn State, playing in 14 games his freshman season and 27 games his sophomore season, though he never started. During his sophomore campaign, he played 10.1 minutes per game, recording four points, .3 assists, and .7 rebounds per game.

With Brown’s departure, Penn State has at most five scholarship players from the 2023-24 season on its 2024-25 roster. The Nittany Lions are also expecting to bring in three recruits from the Class of 2024. The statuses of Ace Baldwin Jr. and Puff Johnson are up in the air, as it’s unknown if they’ll use their final year of eligibility.
