Former Penn State commit Brandon Austin is back on the market and ready to take some visits.
The 6-foot-6, 175-pound small forward out of Philly Imhotep Charter will take an unofficial to Temple Monday, his AAU coach, Lonnie Lowry, told SNY.tv Friday evening.
After that, Austin will unofficially visit Georgetown (Aug. 23) and Providence (no date set).
“And he will take an official to UCLA once school starts,” Lowry said. “We’re just trying to get the dates right.”
Austin, who recently decommitted from Penn State to re-examine his options, is also considering Baylor, Florida, SMU and Maryland, Lowry said.
