Little more than a month since committing to Providence on Christmas Day, Ricardo Ledo has decommitted.
The No. 2 shooting guard in the Class of 2012 from Fitchburg (Mass.) Notre Dame Prep announced the move on his Twitter.
“I’m no longer a providence friar I decided to open my recruitment back up and view my other options.”
Numerous schools were involved with the 6-foot-6 Ledo prior to the commitment, including Louisville, Kansas, Syracuse, Kentucky and UConn.
“He has decided to take a look at his options,” Notre Dame Prep coach Ryan Hurd said.
In other Notre Dame Prep news, Hurd said Marquette coach Buzz Williams is expected to watch uncommitted senior guard Todd Mayo Thursday, weather permitting.
West Virginia coach Bob Huggins is due in next week.
Mayo said he plans to visit Baylor Feb. 22. Kansas and Providence are also involved.
“There aren’t three guards in the country available better than him,” Hurd said.
