The Penn State basketball program looks to be one of the more prominent landing sports on the list of local transfer Josh Cohen.
The transfer from Saint Francis University (Pa), located just over an hour from Penn State’s campus, will be making a visit to University Park on Monday, according to Joe Tipton of On3Sports.
St. Francis PA transfer Josh Cohen will visit Penn State tomorrow, he tells @On3sports.

The 6-foot-10 New Jersey native entered the NCAA Transfer Portal on March 8 with two years of eligibility remaining after competing for Saint Francis under head coach Rob Krimmel for three seasons. The Red Flash are a member of the Northeast Conference in the FCS.
Cohen averaged 21.8 points and 8.3 rebounds for the Red Flash this season, earning the Northeast Conference Co-Player of the Year while leading Saint Francis to its first postseason victory in three years.
He scored 40 points in a game twice and also tallied a 30-point game against Miami. Cohen is one of very few Red Flash players who have scored more than 1,000 points and pulled down 500-plus rebounds during his tenure at Saint Francis.
Cohen is ranked at No. 21 on On3Sports’ list of top Division I transfer players.
According to Cohen, he has received interest from more than 20 Division I teams, including Notre Dame, Arkansas, Iowa, South Carolina and Florida, along with the Nittany Lions.
With the likely departure of Penn State’s top three senior players in Jalen Pickett, Camren Wynter and Seth Lundy, head coach Micah Shrewsberry may look to make a quick move in an attempt to get an early start on rebuilding the Nittany Lions’ roster for next season.
