We interrupt your Micah Shrewsberry speculation to tell you that Penn State guard Seth Lundy is declaring for the NBA Draft.

Lundy told college basketball insiders Jeff Borzello and John Rothstein this Wednesday afternoon, and then released a statement on Twitter.

He had another year of eligibility remaining, but is deciding to move on from Penn State after four seasons.

“This is the right time for me to go to the next level,” Lundy told ESPN’s Borzello. “I feel like I can compete with the best of them.”

Lundy was one of the biggest reasons Penn State made it to the NCAA Tournament for this first time since 2011 this past season. Although teammate Jalen Pickett got most of the headlines, Lundy was probably Penn State’s second best player. He ended the season averaging 14.2 points per game, 6.3 rebounds per game and finished second in the Big Ten to teammate Andrew Funk in both made 3-point percentage and made 3-pointers.

Additionally, Lundy established himself over his time at Penn State as one of the Big 10’s best defensive players. He eclipsed 1,000 points at Penn State, reaching that milestone in January against Indiana at the Bryce Jordan Center.

Lundy was there for a lot of good and bad times at Penn State. In his freshman season, the team was a lock for the NCAA Tournament before COVID-19 brought the world to a halt. The coach that recruited Lundy, Pat Chambers, resigned amid controversial circumstances in the fall of Lundy’s sophomore year, not long before the season began. Lundy played his sophomore year under an interim coach in Jim Ferry. Penn State finished with a losing record. The first season of the Shrewsberry-era also ended sub-.500.

This past season gave Seth Lundy the payoff he deserved. Now, we’ll find out what he can do at the next level.
