Justin McKoy has been released from his Letter of Intent with Penn State

Penn State basketball's incoming freshmen class has shrunk from four to three. Small forward Justin McKoy (Cary, NC) announced on Twitter that he has asked for, and been granted, a release from his Letter of Intent. 

McKoy verbally committed to Penn State in September of 2018, and signed his Letter of Intent in November. The 6'8 forward was set to join a class that includes forward Seth Lundy (Philadelphia, PA), Adbou Tsimbila (Hagerstown, MD) and Patrick Kelly (Lynchburg, VA/IMG Academy). 

At the time of his commitment, the Nittany Lions were the lone Power Five program to have extended a scholarship offer, but the hometown NC State Wolfpack recently came calling, which seems to have played a part in McKoy's late change of plans.

McKoy's departure leaves Patrick Chambers at the 13 scholarship limit. Prior to this, the Nittany Lions were oversigned by one for the 2019-20 season.
