Penn State’s Jalen Pickett Plans to Return for Fifth Year in 2022-23

Last Friday night, Penn State honored its seven men’s basketball seniors with a tradition Senior Night ceremony.

Jalen Pickett was one of the seniors honored, but it looks like it’s going to be another year before Pickett plays his last game at the Bryce Jordan Center.

Tuesday afternoon, Pickett told Jon Sauber of the Centre Daily Times that he plans on coming back to Penn State for a fifth year.

”I definitely think I’m probably going to take a fifth-year,” Pickett said. “Hopefully things go right.”

The former Siena Saint is the Nittany Lions’ leading scorer, averaging 12.8 points per game. Before Penn State, Pickett played at Siena for three seasons, averaging 15.8, 15.1 and 12.9 points, respectively. It didn’t take him long to make an impact in Happy Valley, either.

If “things go right” and Pickett is indeed coming back, the Nittany Lions will be set to start next season with their top two scorers returning, as junior Seth Lundy is second with 12.3 points per game.
