Penn State Basketball PF John Harrar Invited To Eagles Rookie Minicamp

Penn State men’s basketball power forward John Harrar has been invited to a NFL rookie minicamp by the Philadelphia Eagles according to his agent Blake Fromang.

Harrar didn’t play football for Penn State this past season, much to the disappointment of head coach James Franklin who said that he should’ve played football in a text message to Harrar’s agent. He did play football in high school though as a tight end and did seek scholarship offers for football in addition to basketball.

Harrar was an equally rated two-star recruit for football as he was for basketball by 247Sports. The 6-foot-9, 240-pound athlete came from Strath Haven High School in Wallingford, Pennsylvania. Wallingford is only 31 minutes outside of Philadelphia, so he’d be playing for his hometown team if he were to make the cut.

While playing basketball this past season, Harrar averaged a double-double with 10.6 points per game and 10.3 rebounds per game. Penn State finished this past season 14-17 overall and 7-13 in the Big Ten.

Over his career, Harrar also holds a few program records including most games played (146) and  most career rebounds for a Penn State player in the Big 10 tournament (74). He’s also one of just six players in program history to score over 800 points and grab over 800 rebounds.

Obviously, Harrar’s Penn State career is done but he spoke to great lengths about seeing future success for the historically subpar program.
