Men's Basketball Announces the Class of 2014

PHILADELPHIA - The University of Pennsylvania's John R. Rockwell Head Coach of Men's Basketball, Jerome Allen, has announced his incoming athletes for the 2010-11 season. Eight players are expected to join the Penn men's basketball roster this fall as freshmen.

"We are excited about the incoming class," said Allen, who enters his first full season as the head coach after leading the program for its final 21 games in an interim capacity last year. "We think these guys can help us build the type of program we envision here at Penn. There is a lot of work to be done, but we are excited about the potential of these young men."

The winner of 25 Ivy League titles, Penn returns 12 letterwinners in 2010-11 including three All-Ivy players in seniors Tyler Bernardini and Jack Eggleston and junior Zack Rosen.
