Penn State is down a member of the 2018 class, as three-star athlete Shaquon Anderson-Butts signed his Letter of Intent for Iowa Western Community College Wednesday morning.

This wasn’t something that was unforeseen, as Anderson-Butts has always had academic hurdles he needed to clear, so I don’t think this is all that bad of news for Penn State. While there is the potential he re-opens his recruitment, this was more than likely a plan Anderson-Butts talked with the Penn State coaching staff about. It remains to be seen if he’ll need one or two years to get back in good academic standing, but I’d expect the Nittany Lions to be involved with Anderson-Butts heavily moving forward.
