Penn State favored to land 2024 top 100 players

Penn State basketball has increased their level of recruiting in recent years. In 2015, they landed Josh Reaves who was the first four-star recruit in program history. The next year, Tony Carr and Lamar Stevens were the only other four-star recruits to come to Penn State.

Micah Shrewsberry has been able to land some high end talent since he’s taken over the reigns in State College. Kebba Njie was a four-star in the class of 2022. Carey Booth is a four-star commit from the 2023 class.

Now, it looks like another four-star might be coming to play for Penn State.

Sir Mohammed is a 6’6″ wing player in North Carolina. He’s the son of former Kentucky and 18-year NBA player Nazr Mohammed.

Originally a native of Lexington, Kentucky, Mohammed now plays his high school basketball at Myers Park in Charlotte, NC. 247Sports has ranked him as the 73rd best player in the country for the 2024 class.

On Monday, Mohammed announced his top six schools.

He hasn’t ranked any of the schools on his list and is not excluding any of the other schools who are currently recruiting him.

There are 21 programs that have offered him a scholarship. Some of the top schools outside of his top six include Michigan, Providence, Georgetown, Ohio State, Xavier, NC State, Cincinnati and Notre Dame.

While Mohammed says his top six aren’t ranked in a particular order as of now, On3’s Recruiting Prediction Machine thinks Penn State will land the four-star recruit.

Right now, the Nittany Lions are given a 47.1% chance to land him. Stanford is second with a 32.1% chance.

Mohammed told On3’s Joe Tipton what he’s liked about Penn State so far saying, “The relationship made with the Coach Shrewsberry and Coach Aki and the rest of the staff has been amazing and both my unofficial and official visits were great.”

As Penn State fans wait to see if Shrewsberry will stay with the program, it’s good to see recruits are still in including Penn State on their lists.
