Penn State basketball has received its second commitment of the 2024 recruiting cycle.

Dominick Stewart, a 6-foot-5 shooting guard who is from Maryland but currently playing at Southern California Academy, told Joe Tipton of On3Sports that he’s committed to Penn State.

PSU offered Stewart past month.

He also has offers from schools such as Butler, Cal, Creighton, George Mason, George Washington, Indiana State, Mississippi State and Old Dominion.

Penn State’s first ‘24 commit was Jahvin Carter, a 6-foot-3 guard from Tennessee’s Alcoa High School who announced his decision in June. First-year coach Mike Rhoades and co. also have Iceland’s Bragi Gudmundsson signed from the ‘23 Class.

Stewart explained why he chose Penn State in an interview with 247Sports.

“I think coach Mike (Rhoades) and his whole staff made it feel like family,” he said. “I think it’s a place where I can grow as a basketball player and as a man. I think it was a great fit for me.”

Stewart is on his official visit to Penn State this weekend, which coincides with the football team’s White Out Game Saturday against Iowa. On the visit, Stewart told 247 that he noticed the bonds Rhoades has with his players and staff.

“Just how close they are with them and their families,” he said. “He’s a player coach and he connects with his players on another level.”

Rhoades’ first regular-season game at Penn State is scheduled for Monday, Nov. 6 against Delaware State at the Bryce Jordan Center. The Big Ten opener’s scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 6 at Maryland, with the conference home opener scheduled against Ohio State three days later.
