Kareem Canty Will Visit USF, Hasn’t Committed to Auburn
Despite a report to the contrary, Marshall transfer Kareem Canty has not committed to Auburn and will visit South Florida May 2-4, his former AAU coach told SNY.tv.
“He needs to look to at something at else to see if Auburn is what he wants or if there’s something else that he likes,” Thurgood Marshall coach Abdu Allah Torrence told SNY.tv.
“I wanna thank Auburn for a great time but I wanna make sure I’m 110% sure my next move is my best one and take the rest of my visits !” Canty Tweeted.
Canty visited Auburn over the weekend and liked the visit to coach Bruce Pearl’s new program, but will keep his options going forward.
“Somebody asked him if he loved it and he said, ‘I really love it. I really like the school. I can see myself here,'” Torrence said.
Canty was originally slated to visit Auburn, USF and Penn State (May 9-11). Torrence said it was unclear if he will visit Penn State.
“Right now just USF, I don’t know about Penn State,” Torrence said.
The 6-foot-1 Brooklyn native averaged 16.3 points and 5.5 assists last season as a freshman at Marshall.
