Daniil Kasatkin commits to Penn State basketball: Russian PG pledges to Nittany Lions
Penn State basketball picked up a commitment from Daniil Kasatkin on Sunday night. Kasatkin is a point guard in the 2018 class who plays at Mountain Mission High School in Virginia. He is originally from Ivanovo, Russia.
Kasatkin tweeted his commitment on Sunday.
This is an off-the-radar commitment for Penn State, which now has 4 members in its 2018 recruiting class. Kasatkin is a 6-foot-7 guard who was not ranked by most top recruiting services. You can see his highlights below:
In Penn State’s 2018 class, Kasatkin joins guards Rasir Bolton and Myles Dread, as well as big man Tolu Jacobs Yaffa, who the Nittany Lions also added to their class in November.
In Pat Chambers’ seventh season, Penn State basketball is off to a 4-0 start to the 2017-18 season and topped Columbia on Friday night in the team’s most recent win. The Nittany Lions face Pitt on Monday night as part of the Legends Classic in Brooklyn.
