UConn Transfer Lands at Penn State

Guard Terrence Samuel is headed to Happy Valley, but must sit out a year before he is eligible to play for the Nittany Lions.

You win some, you lose some.

That surely must be what's on Penn State coach Pat Chambers' mind after he was able to land a commitment from UConn transfer Terrence Samuel Tuesday. CBS Sports broke the news and FOS was able to confirm through a source close to the situation.

Earlier this month, Penn State lost junior-to-be guard Geno Thorpe, who landed at South Florida. Bringing in Samuel helps offset that, even though he must sit out a season under NCAA transfer rules.

Samuel played in 35 games for the Huskies last season, averaging 3.6 points and 20.4 minutes. The Brooklyn native had 55 assists, which were third best on the team. He played in 65 games in two year at UConn.
