Sam Sessoms, the former Penn State guard announced on Friday that he will be playing his final year of eligibility at Coppin State University. He played for the Nittany Lions for the past two seasons after starting his career at Binghamton University.

Sessoms played at Shipley High School in Philadelphia but wasn’t heavily recruited and only had one division one scholarship which was from Binghamton. The 6-0, 190-pound Sessoms played at Binghamton from 2018- 20, and averaged 17.8 points per game as a freshman, and 19.8 points per game as a sophomore for the Bearcats.

Seeking an opportunity to play at a higher level, Sessoms into the transfer portal after the 2019-20 season. That was when Sessoms built a rapport with then head coach Pat Chambers, and that is how he landed at Penn State. Sessoms has proven to be a valuable reserve under interim head coach Jim Ferry and Micah Shrewsberry in his time in Happy Valley. As a senior averaged 1.6 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 2.6 assists on 45% from the field while starting ten games last season.

With the pandemic allowing student-athletes an extra year of eligibility, Sessoms went back to the transfer portal looking to play in a program where he will be able to start and play a bigger role on the team. Juan Dixon and the Coppin State Eagles were the beneficiaries of Sessoms’ decision.

Sessoms could be the best player in the Mideastern Athletic Conference and could help the Eagles be the team to beat in the MEAC.
