Penn State Basketball: Kanye Clary Verbally Commits to 2022 Recruiting Class

2022 guard Kanye Clary is eyeing his own graduation and will look to play under all of the lights at the Bryce Jordan Center giving Penn State men’s basketball its first verbal commitment under new head coach Micah Shrewsberry.

Clary hits the scales at 5-foot-11 and 170 pounds according to his Rivals profile. He is an unrated prospect – although that might change in the near future – but had offers from schools like Texas A&M and JMU, among others. Clary brings with him a power game around the rim and is stronger than his frame might lead you to believe. Clary is a Woodstock, Virginia, native and took an official visit earlier this week during the expiration of the the dead-period.

Penn State has had a fairly successful runaway time on the recruiting trail under Shrewsberry so far picking up commitments from Jalen Pickett, Jaheam Cornwall and Jevonie Scott – all three prospects coming from the transfer portal. The additions give the Nittany Lions a significantly new look to their 2022 roster after a slew of departures earlier this offseason.

Clary is a nice first addition to Penn State’s 2022 class, but Shrewsberry will continue to hunt the monster addition of former Purdue commitment Jameel Brown among others.

If Shrewsberry is able to land Brown, it’ll be a good morning for Penn State’s new head coach and his staff.
