Former Penn State center finds new home out of transfer portal

Penn State basketball sees fourth player enter NCAA transfer portal

Another former Penn State basketball player has reportedly found a new home out of the transfer portal. According to a report, Demetrius Lilley has committed to La Salle to return closer to his Philadelphia roots.

Ari Rosenfeld of ELITE High School Scouting reported news of the transfer commitment via a post on social media. In that post, Rosenfeld noted Lilley has two years of eligibility remaining with the Explorers.

Lilley was a three-star recruit in Penn State’s Class of 2022 under former head coach Micah Shewesberry. La Salle was one of the schools that extended an offer to Lilley out of high school, as was another Big 5 program (Saint Joseph’s).

Lilley spent two seasons with Penn State before entering the transfer portal following the conclusion of the 2023-24 college basketball season. Lilley averaged 2.8 points per game and 2.7 rebounds per game this past season. He averaged 9.2 minutes per game and appeared in 20 games.
