Earlier this week, news broke that the Penn State Nittany Lions would be making a key addition to the team’s roster heading into next season. Fans learned that Binghamton transfer Sam Sessoms would be joining the team heading into what should be an important 2020-’21 season.
During his two seasons with Binghamton, Sessoms played in 62 games and averaged 19.4 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 4.8 assists per game in his final year with the Bearcats. And while Binghamton struggled on the court the last two years, the team did show some improvement last year.
Sessoms will now join a Penn State roster figuring to be in a transitional year. The Nittany Lions performed well this season, but will be losing key players like Lamar Stevens and Mike Watkins. It’s anyone’s guess how things will look without them in the fold. We don’t know yet whether Sessoms will be able to play next season. He has two years of eligibility remaining.
And while nobody knows what Sessoms will end up doing this season for Penn State, it seems likely he will have a shot at earning a starting role. He’s a versatile player that can contribute in a variety of different ways. Either way, fans have to be excited about picking up a player like this.
