Penn State picked up their first commit for 2022 earlier this week when 5’11” point guard Kanye Clary announced that he had committed to the school.
AFTER A GREAT VISIT AT PENN STATE WITH @Coach_Shrews , @CoachAk40 AND STAFF, I’M GLAD TO SAY I’M COMMITTED TO PENN STATE UNIVERSITY!! #WeAre #AGTG@pennstatembb@legionofbluePSU@NittanyLion pic.twitter.com/vr76HPYIdb— Kanye Clary (@Kanyeclary) June 3, 2021
The Virginia native is a class of 2022 recruit and had offers from six schools, including James Madison, Old Dominion and Texas A&M.
Clary is the first commit under new head coach Micah Shrewsberry, who Penn State hired away from Purdue shortly after the 2020-21 season finished. The unranked guard had received an offer from the school in April and made a visit to campus earlier this week, wasting no time to commit after his official visit.
Shrewsberry has been working on filling out Penn State’s roster, already adding two players from the transfer portal and a JUCO transfer that will all be eligible for 2021-22. It does add some experience to the roster, something that will be needed as the 2021 class currently only includes three-star forward Jevonnie Scott.
Penn State is set to host a slew of recruits over the next few weeks and Shrewsberry and company will look to start expanding their 2022 recruiting class.
