Braeden Shrewsberry, a Class of 2023 three-star shooting guard out of State College Area High School in State College, Pennsylvania Has signed his letter of intent to play basketball at Penn State.
Shrewsberry chose Penn State over George Washington, Saint Josephs’s, and Xavier last November. He is the number four player in Pennsylvania, the No. 33 shooting guard, and the No. 196 player nationally according to 247Sports composite ratings.
Braeden is the son of Penn State men’s basketball coach Micah Shrewsberry and was the first player from the Class of 2023 to commit to playing basketball at Penn State.
Shrewsberry, who played at West Lafayette High School last season, averaged 20.9 points per game, shot 39 percent from the three-point line, and 89 percent from the free-throw line. He transferred to State College Area High School for his senior season as he will play closer to where his father coaches.
Shrewsberry, who is 6-foot-2, 170-pounds, is known as a sharpshooter who can consistently hit three-point shots, and that is always welcome in any college basketball program.
Shrewsberry can be a potential player that can come off the bench and score points in bunches, maybe as early as his freshman season. He set a school record for West Lafayette High School for points in a game with 42 points while shooting 7-for-16 from three-point range in a game last December.
