Penn State men’s basketball head coach Mike Rhoades has his first building block in the Class of 2024. Penn State received a verbal commitment from guard Jahvin Carter on Monday night, giving the Nittany Lions its first commitment in the current recruiting cycle.

Carter, from Alcoa, Tennessee, does not have a recruiting rating on 247Sports. He commited to Penn State over offers from Georgia Tech and Middle Tennessee State. Penn State extended its offer to Carter just a couple of weeks ago, and the Nittany Lions quickly rose to the top of the list for the out-of-state recruit.

Carter measures 6′-2″ and 175 pounds heading into his senior season of high school basketball. He is coming off a junior season with an average of 27 points per game and he was a key part of a state championship run for Alcoa. So there is definitely something encouraging with this commitment for Penn State.
