Izaiah Brockington isn't going anywhere after all.

The rising senior was one of six Penn State players to enter the transfer portal earlier this month but has elected to return to play for new head coach Micah Shrewsberry. 

Brockington was the Nittany Lions' second-leading scorer this past season after moving into the starting lineup, averaging 12.6 points per game. If nothing else than to just keep some continuity with the current roster, this is a big win for Shrewsberry and Penn State to get Brockington back in the fold for next year.

Per his tweet, Brockington had received interest from schools in the ACC, Big East, Big 12 and SEC while he was in the portal. 

Decisions still loom for Jamari Wheeler, John Harrar, Myreon Jones, Seth Lundy and Trent Buttrick.
