Nick Noskowiak, one of four commits in Steve Wojciechowski’s inaugural recruiting class, was granted his release from his National Letter of Intent on Friday night.
“We support Nick’s request to be granted a release from his letter of intent,” Wojciechowski said in a statement. “After a discussion with Nick, we decided it was best for our program, and for Nick personally, to explore other options and wish him the best of luck as he continues his basketball career.”
While no coach likes to see a four-star recruit back away from a commitment, Wojciechowski still has to be pleased with his first recruiting class. The incoming class consists of five-star power forward Henry Ellenson and four-star shooting guard Haanif Cheatham headline the class along with center Matt Heldt.
This isn’t the first time Noskowiak has decommitted from Marquette. After Buzz Williams left for Virginia Tech, the 6-foot-2 point guard briefly reopened his recruitment only to pledge to the Golden Eagles once again.
Noskowiak has offers from Illinois, Iowa State, Green Bay, Northern Iowa and Milwaukee.
He recently returned to his Sun Prairie High basketball team after a two month absence for personal reasons. The initial report was Noskowiak was dealing with depression, however, that was later refuted by Noskowiak, saying he needed to leave an abusive household.
