State College police Lt. Keith Robb said Wednesday they were among seven suspects charged with the summary offense following the Feb. 26 fight that left one person with minor injuries ...

Buie has been suspended from the basketball team since late December for an unrelated and unspecified violation of team rules.

Buie is a talented player who averaged 5.8 points per game as a freshman, but only played 11 games due to the aforementioned suspension. He's still technically with Penn State, but it's unclear what he'll be doing next year.

"I don’t want to say that Penn State is out of the question," [Buie's mother Denise] Murphy said Sunday. "Taran would like to stay at Penn State, but I don’t know if that’s in the cards."

Murphy said she’s unaware of interest from other schools at this point and unsure if other colleges are allowed to talk to Buie, who is still on Penn State’s roster.
