Rasir Bolton opens up about why he left Penn State, and it isn’t pretty

Why exactly did Rasir Bolton leave Penn State and then get a waiver to play right away last season at Iowa State.

Now we know.

Bolton, who will be a junior on next year’s Cyclone men’s basketball team, opened up on Twitter Monday morning regarding his exit from Penn State’s program.

Within Bolton’s tweet, he accuses Penn State head coach Pat Chambers of referencing a “noose” around his neck.

“I reported this immediately to my academic advisor,” Bolton wrote. “I confronted Coach Chambers. I spoke directly with the AD’s office myself. My parents contacted the AD’s office in writing and by phone. My parents drove 5 hours to Penn State to meet with he AD’s office and Coach Chambers more than once. During this time, Coach Chambers admitted to what he said.”

Bolton claims that he was sent to a psychologist where he was “taught ways to deal with Coach Chambers’ personality type.”

“I tell this story because it is not alleged,” Bolton wrote. “It was admitted to and documented.”

Bolton’s mother, Chalonda, chimed in as well.

You can read more about Bolton’s treatment at Penn State and why he left Pat Chambers’ program in this feature story from The Undefeated.
