Brandon Austin (Philadelphia/Imhotep Charter), ranked No. 90 in the ESPN 100, pulled back from his Penn State commitment on Sunday. According to one of the administrators of his travel team, it’s been brewing and wasn’t directly related to the news surrounding the Penn State football team.
“The kid said he rushed the commitment and wants to open it back up and see what’s out there,” Lonnie Lowry of Team Philly said.
Austin, an athletic wing player, committed on Feb. 9 via Twitter, to Pat Chambers' Penn State program. At the time he was the second in-state player to opt for the Nittany Lions, joining Pittsburgh Shaler point guard Geno Thorpe.
