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. Palo, who graduated ISU this spring, announced his intention to join the Rams and coach Larry Eustachy less than a month ago. In order to play this upcoming season, Palo will need a waiver from the NCAA granting him a sixth year of eligibility. The 2009 Ames High graduate declined to provide further details as to the reasons for his de-commitment from CSU. Palo’s story has been a long and winding one since he was charged with second-degree sexual abuse in September 2012 stemming from an incident from May of that year. He was immediately suspended by ISU, but reinstated when charges were dropped at the request of Story County prosecutors in Jan. 2013.
