BOSTON — Negus Webster-Chan, a 6-foot-7 small forward from Huntington (WV) Prep, has decommitted from Louisville for 2012.
“I just didn’t feel comfortable with all of the changes at Louisville,” he told Alex Kline of The Recruit Scoop. “I had a great relationship with Coach [Mark] Lieberman and with his new role [as Director of Basketball Operations], I just didn’t feel like it was the best fit for me. I appreciate all of the Louisville fans that have showed their support for me and hope they understand.
“I will always be a Card fan because of my bro Gorgui [Dieng].”
Said Huntington coach Rob Fulford: “He will fully go through the recruiting process and take all five official visits next year. His timetable will probably be next spring, so he has time to make the right decision and coaching changes have been made at that point.”
