STATE COLLEGE, Pa - Penn State basketball’s Ishaan Jagiasi is a national champion, but not one on the court.

Jagiasi won the 2014 National Championship in the Pokemon TCG Senior Division. He also has grown a large Tik Tok following of over 300 thousand people. 

Micah Shrewsberry welcomed Jagiasi to the program as a walk-on. While his impact might not always be seen in the stat sheet, the Nittany Lion head coach said Jagiasi is “the dopest dude” he’s ever been around.
