College Basketball Rumors: Five-Star Forward Decommits From USC, Nate Mason Injury & More

The non-conference portion of the college basketball season is virtually over, and while there's essentially an off week of on-court play until next weekend, there is plenty of news happening off the court. Here's all the latest that you need to know, including more fallout from the FBI investigation:

Taeshon Cherry re-opens recruitment after decommitting from USC
Five-star forward Taeshon Cherry (El Cajon, CA) decommitted from USC on Saturday night as a result of the school's involvement in the ongoing FBI investigation.

Cherry originally committed to the Trojans in June but is now backing off due to potential sanctions that may be handed down the NCAA. The school ruled projected first-round pick De'Anthony Melton ineligible earlier this week as a result of their own investigation into the FBI's findings.

The 6-foot-8, 210-pounder is ranked as the No. 7 small forward and No. 27 overall prospect in the country, according to the 247sports Composite. He was also considering Arizona, Florida State, Gonzaga, Oregon, San Diego State, Texas A&M, and UCLA before he committed to USC.
