Penn State basketball has made a big splash this offseason, adding a highly-touted transfer guard to the roster.
On Monday night, former Binghamton guard Sam Sessoms announced on Twitter that he will be transferring to Penn State. Due to NCAA transfer guidelines, he will be forced to sit out for the 2020-21 season, and will then be eligible for the 2021-22 campaign, according to the Centre Daily Times.
