Kareem Canty did not commit to Rutgers on Friday afternoon, on the contrary to a report by Alex Kline of The Recruit Scoop earlier today.
“[It was a] big misunderstanding. They offered, but no commitment,” Canty said in a text message. “My recruitment is wide-open.”
He said he is currently considering St. Bonaventure, Rutgers, West Virginia, Boston College and George Mason. The 6-foot-1 Bishop Loughlin (N.Y.) point guard said he will not commit until November.
Sources close to Rutgers confirmed the lack of a commitment.
“No, Canty did not commit,” one source said.
Multiple sources have stated Canty did indeed try to commit to the Scarlet Knights, but the coaching staff is holding off on accepting the commitment.
Either way, Canty is not happy the story became such a big deal.
"I don't know [how it happened], but I'm mad that somebody really put that up there," he said.
