Last week, Penn State men’s basketball picked up its second commitment of the 2023 recruiting cycle in combo guard Logan Imes.
If proverbial crystal balls are to be believed, coach Micah Shrewsberry might be landing another one soon.
Amani Hansberry, a 6-foot-8, 222-pound power forward/center from Mount St. Joseph’s High School in Washington, D.C., is projected to commit to Penn State in both of 247 Sports’s “crystal ball” predictions.
The projections are courtesy of Jeff Ermann and Colby Giacubeno, both from InsideMDSports. Both projections also have a “high” confidence level of seven.
Hansberry, a three-star according to both 247 and Rivals.com, has 14 total offers, five of which are from schools that went to this year’s NCAA tournament. Penn State is the only school he’s officially visited, doing so March 24.
If Hansberry is to pick Penn State, he’d be the third 2023 commit, joining Imes and Braeden Shrewsberry, son of Micah. Penn State has some size in its 2022 class, with 6-foot-10 centers Kebba Njie and Demetrius Lilley both signed, and Hansberry would give Penn State some size for 2023’s group.
