Penn State freshman Joe Hampton has elected to leave the men’s basketball program and withdraw from the university, Penn State coach Patrick Chambers announced Friday.
“Joe has made the decision to leave the program based on personal reasons,” Chambers said in a press release. “We wish him the best of luck with his future endeavors.”
Hampton, a 6-foot-8, 250-pound forward from Oak Hill Academy in Virginia, was a 3-star recruit. He also had reported offers from DePaul, Maryland and Xavier.
