Former Penn State Hoops Guard Kanye Clary Transfers To Mississippi State

Former Penn State men’s basketball point guard Kanye Clary has found his new home.

After a tumultuous two seasons in Happy Valley, Clary announced his commitment to Mississippi State on Instagram on Friday after entering the transfer portal on March 18.

Clary was dismissed from the team by Mike Rhoades on February 19. The Virginia Beach native averaged 16.7 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 2.8 assists through 23 games as a Nittany Lion this season. Rhoades cited a “coach’s decision” as the reason for the dismissal. Clary was the team’s leading scorer and a starter in the backcourt alongside Ace Baldwin Jr. for much of the 2023-24 season.

As a freshman under Micah Shrewsberry, Clary averaged 10.4 minutes and 3.7 points per game while coming off the bench for the Nittany Lions during their Big Ten and NCAA Tournament runs. Clary chose to stay in State College with Jameel Brown and Demetrius Lilley after Rhoades was named the program’s next head coach.

Clary was the first recruit to commit to Shrewsberry in the 2022 class as a three-star point guard by 247Sports. The Massanutten Military Academy product was ranked as the eighth-best player in Virginia and the 25th-best point guard in the country.
