UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - Payton Banks, a redshirt junior on the Penn State men’s basketball team, will graduate from Penn State this spring and not return to the program, head coach Patrick Chambers announced Friday.
"We wish Payton the best moving forward and thank him for his four years at Penn State," Chambers said.
Banks will earn a bachelor’s degree this spring in Integrative Arts with concentrations in graphic design and animation. He saw action in 93 career games over three seasons, making 44 starts after redshirting his freshman season in 2012-13.
The Orange, California, product averaged 7.4 points and 2.7 rebounds in his career with 10.4 points per game in his final PSU season. Banks will have one year of eligibility remaining if he chooses to pursue another playing opportunity.
