Binghamton guard Sam Sessoms will transfer to Penn State, per his Twitter account.

Sessoms was the America East Conference's leading scorer this past season, averaging 19.4 points per game, while shooting just under 42% from the floor. Just 6'0, Sessoms is a crafty scorer, able to connect from all over the court. He shot 48% from inside the arc and 81% from the free-throw line this past season.

Sessoms is the latest in what's becoming a trend of mid-major guards transferring to Penn State, with Izaiah Brockington laying the groundwork for this move. Brockington and grad transfer Curtis Jones gave the Nittany Lion's backcourt a huge boost this past season.

A Philadelphia native, Sessoms will be a junior this upcoming season but will have to sit out the '20-21 season, unless he is granted a waiver or the NCAA votes to allow no-penalty transfers. Since he did not redshirt, he has three years of eligibility to play two seasons.
