Penn State Lands Former Bucknell Sharp-Shooter Andrew Funk

On Thursday, Penn State added two transfer commitments, one from Cam Wynter, a former Drexel guard, and now one from Andrew Funk, who spent four years playing at Bucknell.

Funk is a 6-foot-5 guard from Warrington, Pennsylvania, who took his game to another level this season. As a senior, he averaged 17.8 points per game, hitting 84 threes on the season and shooting 36% from outside. His best game of the season came against Illinois State, when he hit seven of 16 three-point attempts and finished with 38 points.

Funk has scored more than 1,200 points in his career to go along with 344 career rebounds from the guard position.

Alongside Funk in the back court will be the team’s other addition, Wynter, as well as last year’s leading scorer Jalen Pickett. Two of Penn State’s incoming freshmen— Kanye Cleary and Jameel Brown— are also listed as guards.

Head Coach Micah Shrewsberry has loaded up the Nittany Lions with young talent and veteran experience up and down the roster, and should be looking at an improvement on last year’s 14-17 season.
