Seth Lundy made it official today, announcing on his InstaGram account that he is staying at Penn State.
The Penn State basketball program received some major news this afternoon with reports stating that sophomore swingman Seth Lundy is exiting the transfer portal and plans to stay with the Nittany Lions.
Mark Brennan from Lions247.com confirmed the news with sources after Portal Updates first reported it earlier today.

This is a huge development for new PSU coach Micah Shrewsberry, who now has been able to convince two of the six key players who entered the transfer portal after the season to end up staying put.
Second-leading scorer Izaiah Brockington announced last week that he is staying, and now third-leading scorer Lundy will be sticking around, as well.
Leading scorer Myreon Jones (Florida), point guard Jamari Wheeler (Ohio State) and reserve big man Trent Buttrick (UMass) already have transferred. Reserve Patrick Kelly, who saw little playing time, also moved on (Fordham).
Lundy averaged 10.1 points and 4.2 rebounds this past season, while shooting 38.5 percent from the field, 32.0 percent from 3 and 81.3 percent from the FT line.
Lundy showed explosive scoring capabilities, pouring in 32 points against VCU and 31 against Maryland. He also scored 26 and 23 in other games.
However, Lundy was extremely inconsistent. He had three games where he didn’t score at all, and four additional games with three points or less.
Still, Lundy is a proven scorer in the Big Ten and a known commodity, someone Shrewsberry can build around as he takes over the program.
Along with Lundy, Shrewsberry will have Brockington and point guard Sam Sessoms as the nucleus of the team next season. The coach also is expected to bring in some players from the transfer portal.
