UConn transfer Rahsool Diggins planned to visit Penn State today, but those plans have changed, and Diggins will focus on visits to UMass and then Rhode Island, basketball insider Adam Zagoria reports.

After one season with UConn, in which he only appeared in nine games and scored seven points, Diggins entered the transfer portal March 29. Before college, Diggins– a 6-foot-2, 175-pound guard– was a standout at Archbishop Wood High School. The four-star recruit chose UConn over schools such as Kansas, Villanova and Florida. Penn State also offered Diggins when Pat Chambers was still the head coach. 

Penn State is still looking for help in the backcourt since Sam Sessoms entered the portal last month. 

The Nittany Lions have point guard Kanye Clary and combo guard Jameel Brown signed to their 2022 class, but neither of those two have prior college basketball experience.

They are coming off a 14-17 season in Micah Strewberry’s first-year as head coach. The team did win five games against NCAA tournament teams though, and all were conference victories. Those notable wins include Iowa, Michigan State, Indiana, Ohio State and Rutgers.

Diggins will have three seasons of eligibility remaining and should be able to play right away. According to the same report, he will still visit UMass and Rhode Island.
