Penn State basketball has picked up a commitment from former North Carolina guard D’Marco Dunn out of the the transfer portal.

Dunn tweeted the news late Thursday afternoon.

Dunn (6-foot-5, 190 pounds) played his final two seasons of high school basketball at Westover High School in Fayetteville, North Carolina, was the No. 4 player in North Carolina, the No. 20 shooting guard, and the No. 90 prospect in the Class of 2021, according to 247Sports composite rankings.

Dunn played in 50 games for North Carolina and averaged 2.7 points, 0.7 rebounds, and 0.2 assists per game. He was one of seven former North Carolina players to enter the transfer portal after going from the preseason number-one ranked team to missing the NCAA tournament entirely.

Dunn is a former four-star recruit that was a part of crowed backcourt at North Carolina and looks to receive a bigger role at Penn State, and new head coach Mike Rhoades believes that he will fit right in with the culture at Penn State as he spoke about Dunn to

“We’re super exited to have D’Marco join our basketball family. I have known D’Marco for a long time and I am really exited to now get to work with him. D’Marco fits our style of play and approach, and we can’t wait to get in the gym with him.”

Penn State has filled its final scholarship roster spot as he joins the following transfers:

G Ace Baldwin from VCU

G Nick Kern Jr. from VCU

G RayQuandis Mitchell from Missouri-Kansas City

F Zach Hicks from Temple

F Puff Johnson from UNC

F Leo O’Boyle from Lafayette

C Favour Aire from Miami

C Qudas Wahab from Georgetown

Penn State will have holdovers Jameel Brown, Kanye Clary, and Demetrius Lilly returning and will have incoming freshman Bragi Gudmundsson on its roster.

Dunn has two years of eligibility left.
