Former Rutgers guard Corey Chandler will decide on Sunday between Binghamton and St. Bonaventure, according to Newark East Side coach Bryant Garvin.
The 6-foot-2 Chander, recently dismissed from the Rutgers team for a violation of team rules, visited Binghamton Tuesday-Thursday this week and will go to St. Bonaventure Saturday.
“He was interested in a couple other schools, but basically thgose schools are closer to Newark as far as him being able to go see his child,” said Garvin, referring to Chandler’s 7-month-old son in Newark.
Asked when Chandler would decide, Garvin said, “Sunday. School’s going to start on Monday.”
Garvin said Memphis was not a candidate because it was too far away from Newark. Rider also inquired but does not have an available scholarship.
St. Bonaventure earlier this summer landed Houston transfer Horace McGloster, also a Newark native. The 6-7 McGloster must sit out next year.
Chandlerwas dismissed from the Rutgers team earlier this month after a violation of team rules.
“We wish Corey the best as he moves forward,” Rutgers head coach Fred Hill said in a statement. “We consider this a family matter and there will be no further comment.”
Chandler averaged 7.0 points and 3.3 rebounds last season.
He will have to sit out a season before suiting up in 2010-11.
