Penn State men’s basketball got a big boost this past Thursday when Drexel transfer Cam Wynter and Bucknell transfer Andrew Funk both committed to Penn State.

Now, the two guards are officially part of the program and were introduced Tuesday afternoon.

Wynter (6-foot-2) ended his Drexel career with 1,659 career points in four seasons and averaged 15.8 in 2021-22.

”From the minute Cam entered the transfer portal,” Penn State coach Micah Shrewsberry said in a statement, “we identified him as one of the premier players available and somebody who could greatly help our team. Cam is an excellent player who can play the point guard or shooting guard position, and provides not only scoring, but also good passing and an ability to rebound from the guard spot.”

Shrewsberry also said that, as much as he was impressed with Wynter’s talent, his character and basketball IQ stood out most of all.

“Cam is someone who brings tremendous character,” Shrewsberry said, “and should be a leader of the culture within our program from the minute he steps on campus.”

Funk scored 1,230 points on four seasons at Bucknell and averaged 17.6 this past year, also shooting 36.3 percent from 3-point range.

Funk’s skills from beyond the arc stick out to his new head coach.

“In college basketball, there’s no substitute for being able to make a three-point shot,” Penn State  Shrewsberry said. “And Andrew Funk is someone who has proven more than capable of that during his decorated four-year career at Bucknell.”

Shrewsberry also praised Funk’s ability to pass and create, and also said that his new guard is a “tremendous student and person.”

“He checks everything you could want from a Penn State student athlete and should be a great mentor for our younger players to look up to on and off the court.”
