Penn State Reaches Out to West Virginia Transfer F Isaiah Cottrell

West Virginia transfer Isaiah Cottrell told WV Sports Now Thursday night that Penn State has reached out to him.

Cottrell (6-foot-10, 245 pounds) said that Arizona State, Arkansas, Butler, BYU, Loyola Chicago, Loyola Marymount, Montana, Ole Miss, Penn State, Seton Hall, Southern Illinois, St. John’s, Texas Tech, Utah, and UNLV have all contacted the former Mountaineer.

Cottrell announced Wednesday that he would enter his name into the transfer portal.

Cottrell spent two seasons at West Virginia, starting most of his second year at center. In 33 games this past season, the Las Vegas native averaged 4.2 points, 2.8 rebounds and 0.7 blocks. Cottrell shot 34 percent from the field and 31 percent from three (47 attempts).

In his freshman season, Cottrell suffered an Achilles injury 10 games into the year. The former Mountaineer was sidelined for eight months, before returning to the court in August. Cottrell has expressed his concerns of playing aggressive but recently has forgotten about his injury.

“I think I jump higher now than I did when I wasn’t injured,” Cottrell said in February. “I don’t even think about it now. I think everybody else thinks about it more than I think about it.”

Cottrell will have three years of eligibility remaining.
