Nittany Notebook (10-30): Hoops transfer Sessoms ruled eligible: report

So be sure to check back often to stay on top of everything that’s going on with Penn State football and athletics, plus other sports of interest in central PA.

**Some good news for PSU hoops. Sam Sessoms will be eligible after transferring from Binghamton. The Philly native is a big-time scorer, averaging 19.4 points last season at Binghamton.

Sessoms led the America East Conference in scoring last year. The 6-foot guard has two years of eligibility remaining.

Update: 5:30 p.m.

Update: 10:40 a.m.

**On this baseball item, I say no way. Bell had a -0.7 WAR and .669 OPS last season. His production dropped off a cliff from 2019. Pirates need to wait and see if he bounces back in 2021.

Update 10:20 a.m.

**Desmond Howard will broadcast remotely Saturday for the “GameDay” show at Penn State.
