Penn State’s Sam Sessoms Enters Transfer Portal

Sam Sessoms is a prototypical 2020s college basketball player.

Why’s that? Well, in all likelihood, Sessoms will be enrolled at his third school and playing for his third college team this fall.

The Penn State guard who found a niche coming off the bench for first-year coach Micah Shrewsberry will be entering the transfer portal.

Sessoms averaged 11.6 points per game and shot 42 percent from three in what was primarily a reserve role. In his first season at Penn State in 2020-21, Sessoms averaged 8.2 points, also in a sixth-man role.

Before Penn State, Sessoms played at Binghamton for two seasons, scoring 1,151 total points and twice being named all-conference.

Sessoms has one year of eligibility left, as does Myles Dread, who was also a key reserve for the Nittany Lions. It’s not yet clear what Dread will decide.
