Naadir Tharpe (Worcester, Mass./Brewster Academy, a rising senior point guard, decommitted from Providence on Wednesday. The ESPNU Super 60 prospect originally committed to the Friars in March and his decision to open up his recruitment comes less than a week after assistant coach Pat Skerry left the Providence staff to take a similar position at Pittsburgh. Skerry had been the lead recruiter for Tharpe. "Coach Skerry was the guy who was recruiting me the whole time; the one who I was close with," Tharpe said. "Once he left I just wanted to look at my other recruitment and see what was out there."
