Penn State Basketball Adds Commitment From ‘23 Icelandic G Bragi Gudmundsson

Penn State basketball has received a commitment  from Icelandic Class of 2023 guard Bragi Gudmundsson, Gudmundsson announced via Instagram Wednesday afternoon.

Gudmundsson (6-foot-5, 185 pounds), will be 20 in October.

He previously played for Grindavik, a team in the Iceland-Subway league, where he spent four seasons.

Last year, Gudmundsson averaged 10 points per game, shooting more than 34 percent from the field and more than 28 percent from beyond the arc, according to EuroBasket. Gudmundsson also averaged four rebounds and 1.8 assists per game.

Gudmundsson will play with the Icelandic national team this summer. After that, he’ll join coach Mike Rhoades’s first Penn State team as the first non-transfer portal player Rhoades has acquired in his brief tenure.

Penn State’s 2023 recruiting class looked set in stone. Four-star Carey Booth (Brewster Academy) and three-stars Logan Imes (Zionsville, Indiana) and Braeden Shrewsberry (State College), all signed in November. Then, the coach that was going to bring them to Penn State, Braeden’s father, Micah, left for Notre Dame, and all three of Penn State’s ‘23 signees eventually followed the coach.

Now, Shrewsberry’s successor, Rhoades, is trying to pick up the pieces. He’s landed seven transfers thus far, and now has Gudmundsson from the Class of ‘23. Bragi Gudmundsson will be the fourth total guard Penn State has incoming, joining reigning A-10 Player and Defensive Player of the Year Ace Baldwin and fellow guard Nick Kern, who both followed Rhoades from VCU, and RayQuawndis Mitchell, who transferred in from UKMC.

Penn State also has guards Kanye Clary and Jameel Brown returning from last season. Clary never entered the transfer portal. Brown did, but withdrew his name and is returning to Penn State.
