Report: Penn State guard enters transfer portal for second time in a month
Penn State guard Izaiah Brockington is back in the NCAA transfer portal, according to a report from 247Sports. This is the second time in just over a month he has decided to explore options outside of State College.
Brockington initially entered the NCAA transfer portal on March 16 following Penn State’s coaching change. The athletic department moved on from interim head coach Jim Ferry and hired Purdue assistant Micah Shrewsberry to lead the program.
After a “good talk” with Shrewsberry, Brockington removed his name from the portal and opted to return to Penn State. It seems, though, that he has changed his mind and will look for other opportunities after all.
Last season, Brockington was a key piece for the Nittany Lions, averaging 12.6 points and 3.9 rebounds per game. He played just under 30 minutes per contest and started in 24 of the 25 games he played in during the 2020-21 season.
Brockington just completed his third season at Penn State, but only his second year of eligibility. Before joining the Nittany Lions, he spent one season at St. Bonaventure, appearing in 34 games with 1 start. He averaged 4.3 points and 1.2 boards per game before leaving the program.
