The 6-foot-7 forward had originally committed to Penn State in November. However, he had a change of heart in March, deciding to reopen his recruitment. Hampton held offers from Xavier, DePaul, Virginia Tech and Rhode Island.

He re-joins a 2016 class, which now includes thee-star shooting guard Nazeer Bostick.

Hampton is ranked in the Rivals150 at No. 114 overall in the Class of 2016.
