Shrewsberry: Lee brings ‘veteran presence, experience’ to Lions

Graphic by Penn State Athletics

Penn State made it official Tuesday morning by announcing the signing of transfer forward Greg Lee from Western Michigan, bringing the number of incoming transfers so far this offseason to four.

Lee is a 6-foot-9 senior who played three seasons at Cal State Bakersfield and one at Western Michigan, where he averaged 13.0 points and 7.2 rebounds per game last year. He was named honorable mention all-MAC and will have one year of eligibility remaining at PSU.

Here’s what Micah Shrewsberry had to say about Lee in a release from Penn State:

“Greg is going to be a great addition to our program,” said Shrewsberry. “He will provide a veteran presence and add more experience to our front line. His versatility and ability to score the ball in a variety of ways will be really helpful in our system. More importantly, he is a gym rat who will constantly push himself and his teammates to become better.”

Lee joins forward Jevonnie Scott and guards Jalen Pickett and Jaheam Cornwall as transfers who have joined the PSU program this offseason.

This is what Shrewsberry had to say about the other three incoming players:

On Scott: “Vonnie is going to be a great addition to our Penn State Basketball family,” said Shrewsberry. “He is a high-energy, fun-loving kid who will be a terrific fit for our locker room. His versatility on the court is something I am looking forward to using on both the offensive and defensive ends. He has a great basketball background and has been well-coached growing up and at South Plains. Coming from a successful program, he will bring a winning attitude and work ethic with him to State College.”

On Pickett: “We are excited to add Jalen to our family,” said Shrewsberry. “He is a versatile guard who will help us on both ends of the floor. Jalen’s basketball IQ is off the charts, and he uses it to make everyone around him better. He is driven to be a good player and we are looking forward to helping him achieve his goals.”

On Cornwall: “Jah is an experienced guard who will be a great addition to our program,” said Shrewsberry. “He has played in a lot of college games, so some of our younger guys can lean on his knowledge. He is a big-time shooter, but he’s also a great decision maker. I’m looking forward to using him in a lot of different ways.”
