Three-Star Guard Houston Mallette Decommits From Penn State Hoops

The fallout from Pat Chambers’ resignation continues.

Three-star guard Houston Mallette has decommitted from Penn State men’s basketball, according to an announcement posted on Twitter Tuesday night.

The 6’5″ Newport Beach, California native cited Chambers’ resignation as the reason he decommitted from the program. He thanked Sandy Barbour, the coaching staff, and the Penn State community for showing support while he was committed to the Nittany Lions.

Mallette joins TaQuan Woodley as the second recruit to de-commit from the program since Chambers’ resignation in October. Elijah Hutchins-Everett remains the last recruit in the Class of 2021 for the Nittany Lions.

Mallette had offers from Eastern Washington, James Madison, Long Beach State, along with a plethora of other schools before he committed to Penn State. At the moment, it’s unclear if he’ll revisit those offers.
