“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.
