L.J. Westbrook backed off his early pledge to Oregon State this week.

"I decommitted 3 days ago," Westbrook informed Scout.com.

"The reason why is because now that I am in the 2014 class, I feel like I committed way too early," he added. "And now I want to take my time and see what my options are."

To go with his reclassification to the 2014 class, Westbrook, a 6-foot-3 guard, also recently transfered from Salem (Ore.) North to Lee (Maine) Academy.

Since decommitting on Tuesday, Westbrook said he's heard from St. Joseph's and Harvard.
