In his sophomore season (2018-19), Pickett once again led PSU to another successful campaign as they went 20-12 overall including 8-10 in conference play good for fifth place finish but also their first appearance.
In the NIT since 2014 when they narrowly lost 64-61 against Kansas after holding their own throughout most of regulation only to fall apart down the stretch?
Lastly during this year's postseason he recorded averages of 9 PPG (third on team) along with 4 RPG (second on team) en route to being named First Team All Big Ten performer by both coaches & media members.
? After two years of solid yet unspectacular performances it would appear that Jalen may have reached his ceiling due to lack or opportunity?
This could change should Penn State decide not renew Jaren Jackson Jr.'s contract opting instead for someone like Jalen who can provide similar level production off the bench while still developing into more of an all around player.?
Regardless if picks up another offer from PSU or not there are certainly other professional teams out there who would welcome him with open arms?
