Taran Buie Released from Scholarship

Freshman guard Taran Buie, Talor Battle’s younger half-brother, was released from his scholarship according a press release that was published on Monday.

Buie, who came into Penn State as a four-star recruit, committed the night that he watched his older brother Talor help lead the Nittany Lions to the NIT Tournament title at Madison Square Garden back in March 2009.

Before playing a game for Penn State, though, Buie found himself in trouble with the law twice, once on a disorderly conduct charge stemming from a scuffle with Curtis Drake of the football team and later on picking up an underage drinking citation. Last month, he was charged in connection with a fight that occurred in Cedarbrook Apartments on State Patty’s Day.

He only played in 11 games this season before being suspended indefinitely in December by Coach Ed DeChellis for a violation of team rules. During that time, he averaged 5.8 points per game, scoring in double-digits only twice while shooting 34.7% from the field. His best game came against Central Connecticut State when he scored 14 points and grabbed four rebounds.

Penn State now has two scholarships available for the spring signing period.
