Former Penn State guard Izaiah Brockington, an Archbishop Ryan High School graduate who played with the Nittany Lions the last two seasons, has transferred to Iowa State.
The 6-foot-4 Brockington, who spent his first collegiate season at St. Bonaventure, was the Lions’ second-leading scorer last season with a 12.6-point average and led the team in free-throw shooting at 84.1%. He also averaged 4.9 rebounds and 1.7 assists.
Brockington had entered the NCAA transfer portal shortly after Micah Shrewsberry was hired as Penn State’s new head coach on March 15, then announced he was returning to the team. However, on April 22, he announced he was re-entering the portal for good.
“Izaiah is a downhill, playmaking guard who will thrive in the pick-and-roll,” Iowa State coach T.J. Otzelberger said. “He’s got the ability to make plays at the rim and set up teammates. Izaiah is an elite rebounder from the guard position and will impact us with his leadership and toughness.”
