Freshman Joe Hampton Leaves Basketball Program, Citing ‘Personal Reasons’

Pat Chambers announced Friday that freshman forward Joe Hampton has withdrawn from Penn State and will be leaving the basketball program.

“Joe has made the decision to leave the program based on personal reasons. We wish him the best of luck with his future endeavors,” Chambers said in a statement released by the team.

Hampton, a Hyattsville, Md., native, played his high school hoops for famed Oak Hill Academy in Mouth of Wilson, Va., and was considered a three-star recruit in the Class of 2016, according to 247Sports. Hampton was part of a huge recruiting haul for Chambers this past cycle that included Roman Catholic standouts Tony Carr, Lamar Stevens, and Nazeer Bostick, each of whom will make their debuts this season.
