Penn State guard Geno Thorpe to transfer

With the NBA Draft rapidly approaching, college basketball players across the country are looking towards their future. While not all players have the NBA in their sights, they are always looking ahead at those futures.

Penn State guard Geno Thorpe is now acting on his.

According to Penn State athletics, the sophomore guard from Pittsburgh has been granted a release from the program.

When asked about Thorpe’s impact and his leaving, head coach Patrick Chambers simply said,”We thank Geno for his two years at Penn State and wish him well.”

In two seasons with the Nittany Lions, Thorpe played in 66 games.

After a slow freshman season, Thorpe showed improvement in his sophomore season. Averaging 8.7 ppg and 2.6 rpg, Thorpe scored double figures fifteen times.
