Penn State basketball offers lengthy 2025 guard

Penn State is looking to get its 2025 recruiting off the ground with this latest offer.

It’s been a busy offseason for Penn State basketball. From a coaching search to a roster rebuild, the Nittany Lions look a lot different in May than they did after their NCAA Tournament appearance in March. But after hitting the transfer portal hard after taking over as head coach, Mike Rhoades has started to settle into the job. As a result, we’ve started to see more news on the conventional recruiting front in recent weeks. This includes a recent offer made to lengthy 2025 guard Jordan Scott.

Turbulent offseason for Penn State basketball

Penn State basketball was in shambles this offseason. Head coach Micah Shrewsberry, who had just taken his team to the Round of 32, left for Notre Dame. All of Penn State’s 2023 commitments followed Shrewsberry out of State College. One of those commitments was Carey Booth, son of Penn State legend and Denver Nuggets general manager Calvin Booth. 

Penn State’s best players graduated. Others transferred elsewhere. Penn State was down to just two scholarship players. This was not what the Nittany Lions had in mind after going to March Madness for the first time since 2011.

Everything was going wrong for the Nittany Lions. That was until they hired VCU’s Mike Rhoades to replace Shrewsberry. Rhoades and his new staff have been very busy since his hiring in March. Penn State has rebuilt the roster with eight transfers, one high school recruit, and two players from last year’s team. 

Penn State looked like it had no chance to get back to March Madness. Now they have a coach who took his team to the NCAA Tournament three of the last four years with a transformative roster in place. The sky could be the limit for Penn State basketball under Rhoades. But, to continue this upward trajectory, Rhoades and his staff must look towards the future. 

What does Penn State’s future look like?

Penn State’s roster for this upcoming season will feature three seniors – Qudus Wahab, Leo O’Boyle, and Rayquawndis Mitchell. There are four juniors, four sophomores, and one freshman. There will be a ton of veteran experience on the court for this year’s Nittany Lions.

But right now, Penn State doesn’t have any commitments in the class of 2024 or 2025. Rhoades and his staff are in the process of recruiting talented high school players who they think will build on the team’s success moving forward. One of these players is a newly offered recruit, lengthy 2025 guard Jordan Scott.

Penn State offers lengthy 2025 guard Jordan Scott

Jordan Scott is a lengthy shooting guard from Reston, Virginia. The 6-5, 165-pound Scott is starting to build out his college offers list. Penn State, along with Illinois, Pitt, Iowa, Washington, and East Carolina, among others, have recently offered Scott. 

Currently, 247Sports doesn’t have the rising junior guard ranked in its database. But it’s still early in Scott’s recruitment, and he has two more seasons of high school basketball left to play and grow his prospect profile. 

It makes sense for Penn State to offer a player like Scott. Rhoades has spent most of his coaching career in Virginia and has many ties to the state. Further, Virginia is a hotbed for Penn State recruiting in sports like football. Along with Rhoades’s connections, offering Scott now should hopefully help the Nittany Lions make early inroads during this recruitment process.
