Penn State Men’s Basketball Reaches Out to Niagara Transfer Marcus Hammond

Penn State men’s basketball has reached out to Niagara transfer Marcus Hammond, Hammond told Nittany Sports Now.

Hammond, a first-team All-MAAC selection averaged more than 18 points per game for the Purple Eagles this past season, an average that was more than seven points above the team’s next highest scorer. Hammond played at Niagara for four seasons, three of them as a starter. He started the last 81 games he appeared in at Niagara and scored 1,422 points.

He entered the transfer portal Tuesday and it appears he’ll use his last year of eligibility elsewhere.

Hammond told Nittany Sports Now that he has also heard from Arkansas, Butler, Cal, Cincinnati, DePaul, Fordham, Iowa State, Oklahoma, Pitt, Rutgers and Temple.

It’s not yet clear how much of a player Penn State is in the hunt to get Hammond, but he would certainly be a big get for Micah Shrewsberry, especially with guard Sam Sessoms entering the transfer portal last week.
