Less than one month after announcing a return to Penn State, junior guard Izaiah Brockington has reportedly returned to the NCAA Transfer Portal. 247Sports was the first to report the news. Brockington originally announced his return to the Nittany Lions on March 26, just days after Micah Shrewsberry's hiring as the program's new head coach was made official.
Brockington was second on last year's team in scoring, averaging over 12 points per game. With former teammate Myreon Jones transferring to Florida, he was set to be the team's top returning scorer in the 2021-22 season.
This news comes just days after Seth Lundy and John Harrar announced their respective returns. That group seemingly was set to form a solid returning core along with Sam Sessoms and Myles Dread, as Shrewsberry worked to upgrade the rest of the roster through the portal, and high school recruiting.
Of the six players that entered the portal following the season, only two have now opted to remain with the program (Lundy, Harrar). Brockington would join Jones, Trent Buttrick (UMass), Jamari Wheeler (Ohio State), and Patrick Kelly (Fordham) as transfers out if he does not return from the portal a second time.
