TaQuan Woodley has officially decommitted from Penn State men’s basketball following the announcement of former coach Pat Chambers’ resignation.

Woodley announced his decision in an Instagram post Tuesday afternoon.

He cited the main reason for reopening his recruitment was specifically the fact that Pat Chambers is no longer the head coach. He also made it clear that he was not opposed to returning to Happy Valley, but that he wanted to consider all of his options before making a final decision.

Woodley, a 6’7″ power forward, is the first recruit to reopen his commitment after the university announced there would be a coaching change. The other two recruits, Elijah Hutchins-Everett and Houston Mallette, have not made any decisions about leaving at this time.

According to 247sports.com, Woodley had received offers from Rutgers, South Carolina, and Temple before committing to Penn State. It is unknown if he will continue to look at those schools as he reopens his commitment.
