Bubu Palo withdraws commitment to Colorado State


In a bit of stunning news on Tuesday night, former Iowa State guard Bubu Palo is no longer transferring to Colorado State.

The embattled Cyclone men’s basketball player informed the Ames Tribune via a text message.

Former Iowa State guard Bubu Palo is no longer committed to transferring to Colorado State, he told the Ames Tribune in a text message Tuesday night.

The 2009 Ames High graduate declined to provide further details as to the reasons for his de-commitment from CSU.

It’s been a long, hard road for Palo. The story to Colorado State felt like a good one. Palo could finally move on from the sexual abuse scandal in Ames and get a fresh start in Colorado State. Ironically, he would be able to do so under former Cyclone coach, Larry Eustachy, who had to deal with his own issues upon his departure from the team.

Instead, nearly a month after Palo announced that he would be transferring to play for the Rams, that intriguing story book doesn’t look like it will be completed.

Palo still hasn’t received a waiver from the NCAA giving him a sixth year of eligibility. We don’t know if his withdrawl from Colorado State means he won’t be receiving it, if he’s just going to find a different place to go, or if he’s going to give up on basketball altogether.

Whatever way it goes, we’ll keep you updated on the ongoing Palo saga. In the meantime, we’ll wish the former Cyclone the best in his future endeavors.
