Penn State got some good news last week when Binghamton transfer Sam Sessoms was granted a transfer waiver by the NCAA and will be immediately eligible for the upcoming season.

Transfer from Binghamton.
While it came against lesser talent, Sessoms averaged 19.4 points, 5.0 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 1.6 steals per game last year. He did have a somewhat problematic 31.5% three point shooting percentage, which is mainly an issue because he was a volume shooter that shot 7 three pointers per game.
Sessoms was a second-team All-America East last year and was the America East Rookie of the Year in his freshman season. Sessoms will join a backcourt that includes Jamari Wheeler, Myreon Jones and Myles Dread.
Penn State will need to find some production on offense with the loss of Lamar Stevens. It’s not known if Sessoms will be in contention for a starting role, but he will bring some experience to the table and add depth to the Nittany Lions backcourt.
