One of the latest additions to Pitt’s recruiting board is Seth Lundy, a 6-foot-6 forward who is transferring from Penn State. Lundy tells Pittsburgh Sports Now that he’s been contacted by a member of the Panthers coaching staff.
Lundy just finished up his sophomore season for the Nittany Lions, averaging 10.1 points and 4.2 rebounds per game. He shot 39% from the field, as well as 32% from three-point range and a solid 81% from the free-throw line.
While he was not the most consistent scorer for Penn State, Lundy did explode for 31 and 32 points in games this season. In each of those games, he shot over 50% from three-point range and made five threes. He had one double-double this season, scoring 16 points and grabbing 10 boards against Rutgers back in January.
Lundy possesses a very strong build for the small forward position, allowing him to guard bigger defenders and shoot over smaller ones. Offensively, when he is hot, he is hot, as he shoots the ball with tons of confidence. His pull up game off the dribble as well as his catch and shoot ability are both strong parts of his game.
AS A RECRUIT
The New Jersey native played his high school ball in Philadelphia for Roman Catholic, leading the team to its third state championship in school history in 2017-18. He held offers from Bowling Green, UConn, Florida, and Georgetown before ultimately taking his talents to Penn State.
According to the 247Sports Composite, Lundy was ranked as a three-star prospect, and listed as the No. 221 player in the nation and No. 8 player in Pennsylvania.
