Penn State men’s basketball for a big boost Tuesday afternoon when 3-point specialist Myles Dread announced his intention to return to State College for a fifth season in 2022-23.

Dread, who was second on the Nittany Lions in 3-point field goal percentage this past season, broke the news via Twitter.

“These past four years have been nothing but everything a kid from Detroit, Michigan could ever ask for,” Dread wrote. “To the fans, the supporters, Legion of Blue, and the staff, I approached that through all the ups and downs your trust and faith in Penn State basketball has never wavered.”

Dread also wrote that he played this season with a “severely torn labrum” in his shooting shoulder. Even still, only Sam Sessoms— who entered the transfer portal almost two weeks ago— was more efficient from beyond the arc on Penn State’s team. Dread got surgery to repair his shoulder soon after the season ended.

With Penn State’s two top scorers, Jalen Pickett and Seth Lundy, expected back, Dread will give added experience to a Nittany Lions’ squad that’s welcoming in the highest-rated recruiting class in program history.

“I look forward to leading this team and giving everything I have as we set out to accomplish our goals,” Dread wrote at the end of his statement.
