    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Kareem Canty continues to change his mind.

    After initially committing to Auburn and then choosing South Florida in May, the Brooklyn point guard has now re-committed to Auburn, according ESPN’s Jeff Goodman.

    Canty averaged 16.3 points and 5.5 assists last season as a freshman at Marshall. Unless he gets a waiver, he must sit a year as per NCAA transfer regulations.

    New Auburn coach Bruce Pearl has also kept signees Sam Logwood and Jack Purchase, while adding junior college power forward Cinmeon Bowers and New Mexico State transfer K.C. Ross-Miller, a point guard who is immediately eligible to play as a senior.

    MARTIN TO SMU

    Xavier transfer Justin Martin is headed to SMU, adding to an already impressive haul for head coach Larry Brown.

    “”Pony Up!!!! Im a mustang baby!!!!” Martin Tweeted.

    The 6-foot-6 Martin averaged 11.7 points and 5.2 rebounds last year at Xavier, but opted to transfer for his fifth year.

    SMU, which reached the NIT championship game, also returns its top two scorers in point guard Nic Moore (13.6 ppg) and forward Markus Kennedy (12.4 ppg, 7.1 rpg).
