Penn State men's basketball made another offseason move to add experience to its roster, announcing the transfer of forward Jalanni White from Canisius.
White, a 6-8 graduate transfer, played in 98 games, starting 50 over four years at Canisius. As a sophomore in 2019, White was named to the MAAC all-tournament team after averaging 13.5 points and 5 rebounds in the tournament.
"We are excited that Jalanni decided to join our family," Penn State coach Micah Shrewsberry said in a statement. "He is an experienced player who will fit in nicely with our current group. His toughness, skill, length and athleticism will help us become a better team on both the offensive and defensive ends of the floor."
White, from New Haven, Conn., started 11 games during Canisius' shortened 2021 season. He brings a 5.1 career scoring average to Penn State and shot 50.5 percent from the field at Canisius. As a junior, White averaged 7 points and 3.4 rebounds per game while shooting 54.2 percent from the field.
White attended Notre Dame-West Haven (Conn.) High, leading the team to its first undefeated (22-0) season in 2016-17.
White is the fifth player to transfer to Penn State since Shrewsberry became head coach. The most recent was Greg Lee, an all-conference forward from Western Michigan.
