Class of 2020 wing Mikael Brown-Jones announced Friday that he has decided to open up his recruitment, decommitting from Penn State.
Thank you to the fans & coaching staff of Penn State. After talking with my family and AAU rapidly approaching, weve decided its best for me to reopen my recruitment & decommitt from Penn State University, thank you and good luck!— Mikeal Brown-Jones (@kealliono) April 12, 2019
Brown-Jones originally committed to the Nittany Lions in November, temporarily ending a lengthy recruitment that had begun when head coach Patrick Chambers offered him a scholarship in January 2016. Brown-Jones first played for Roman Catholic High School, home of top Penn State players under Chambers including Lamar Stevens, Tony Carr, Shep Garner, and 2019 commit Seth Lundy.
It is the second de-commitment for Penn State in the last two weeks, as 2019 commit Justin McKoy was released from his letter of intent at the end of March. McKoy has since seen interest from heavy hitters closer to home, including Virginia, North Carolina, and NC State.
With the de-committment of Brown-Jones, Penn State no longer has any players committed in the 2020 recruiting class.
