Penn State Lands Western Michigan Transfer Greg Lee

Penn State landed a key transfer pickup.

Earlier this week, the Penn State Nittany Lions got some exciting news as Western Michigan transfer Greg Lee announced his commitment to the program. Lee joins what is starting to look like an exciting group of new additions for the recently hired Micah Shrewsberry.

Lee is listed at 6-foot-9 and 210 pounds by 247Sports and played last season at Western Michigan after spending three years at Cal State Bakersfield. He played in a total of 21 games for the Broncos last season and averaged 27.0 minutes, 13.0 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 2.4 assists per game. He was a monster on the boards and dominated Western Michigan’s offensive usage last season.

With John Harrar already returning for the Nittany Lions next year, adding a piece like Greg Lee should improve the depth chart considerably. Penn State will now have two experienced and valuable big men to deploy next season and some capability of playing them both on the floor together when necessary. The roster still has some serious holes, but this should certainly fix at least the frontcourt.

Shrewsberry and his staff still have their work cut out for the 2021 class and beyond, but Nittany Lion fans have to be excited about bringing Lee into the fold.
