Penn State picked up a commitment Thursday night from point guard Kanye Clary, a 5-foot-11, 170-pounder from Massanutten Military Academy in Virginia. He is the first high school player to commit to Penn State since Micah Shrewsberry became coach.

Clary chose Penn State over Texas A&M, Old Dominion, Hampton, James Madison and Norfolk State. He is listed as a 2-star recruit by Verbal Commits and originally is from Virginia Beach, Va. Penn State offered him in April.
Shrewsberry has landed a couple of guards and a forward from the transfer portal since taking over at PSU, and the Nittany Lions are in the mix for some high-profile recruits, including Jameel Brown, Dereck Lively II and Otega Oweh. But Clary is the first prospect to commit to PSU.
