PSU showing interest in Kansas transfer center Muscadin: report

Gethro Muscadin

New Penn State coach Micah Shrewsberry has seen some of the team’s best players leave via the transfer portal. But the portal goes two ways, and Shrewsberry also is actively seeking players from other programs to transfer to PSU.

A report out today says Penn State is interested in Kansas freshman center Gethro Muscadin, a 6-foot-10, 220-pounder from Haiti. He played his final year of high school ball at Aspire Academy in Kentucky, was a three-star prospect and the No. 27 center recruit in the country for the class of 2020.

Muscadin played in 11 games for Kansas this past season but scored just two points and averaged only 2.8 minutes.

He only started playing basketball at age 15 and is still a raw talent. Here’s a good description in a story from the Kansas City Star:

When he was 15 in his native Haiti, “I couldn’t dribble at all,” he said. “A little kid could steal the ball from me. They just told me to block shots and rebound, then I learned to run the floor and shoot the ball and pass. I really like to pass.”

Muscadin has emerged as a top recruit in a relatively short period of time. He started playing basketball when he was 15 and moved to the United States at 16. He spent his freshman year at Life Prep Academy in Wichita, then spent the next two seasons at Sunrise Christian Academy in Bel Aire, Kansas before heading to Aspire for his senior season.

Other schools interested in Muscadin, according to Endless Motor Sports, include Wichita State, Rutgers, UNLV, New Mexico and Colorado State.
