And Then There Were None: Penn State Basketball Loses Last 2021 Commit

Elijah Hutchins-Everett is the latest, and last, to decommit from the Nittany Lions.

A few short weeks before the season, and another few short weeks after the announcement of Pat Chambers’ resignation, Penn State basketball finds itself with zero commitments for the 2021 recruiting class. In an unsurprising turn of events, Elijah Hutchins-Everett followed in the footsteps of TaQuan Woodley, and Houston Mallette, respectively, and announced he’s no longer committed to the Nittany Lions.

Recruits and players leaving a program when there’s a coaching change is nothing new. The same thing happened when Chambers came in. Still, it’s tough to see a promising class evaporate almost immediately after the change.

Good luck to all former recruits at their new landing spots, and may a coach be in the bag shortly before, or after, the season be played.

10 more days until Penn State basketball!
