With UMass on schedule, PSU now will play against two former Lions next season

A report out this morning indicates Penn State has scheduled a home-and-home series against UMass over the next couple of years. Here are the details from national college writer Jon Rothstein:

That’s a good home-and-home for PSU against a solid Atlantic 10 program. It also means the Nittany Lions will be playing against one of their own former teammates next season.

Trent Buttrick already has announced that he’s transferring to UMass, so he’ll be part of the team that plays against PSU next season. Buttrick was a key reserve for the Lions the past few years, and one of three key players who has transferred after the season.

Along with playing against Buttrick next season, Penn State also will be going up against former point guard Jamari Wheeler, who is transferring to Ohio State. The Lions and Buckeyes likely will meet twice during the Big Ten schedule.

It’s doubtful Penn State will face the other key transfer, Myreon Jones, who is heading to Florida. Also, seldom-used reserve Patrick Kelly is transferring to Fordham.
