The recruitment of Danny Lawhorn has been a roller-coaster ride that including reclassifications, Facebook commitments, one decommitment, coaching changes and now, another decommitment.
“Not going to Fordham,” Lawhorn said in a text message Wednesday evening.
The 5-10 point guard from South Kent Prep (Conn.) committed to the Rams in March, choosing them over Georgia Southern, Houston, Baylor, Montana State and Connecticut.
Prior to that, there were reports that Lawhorn had announced his commitment to Connecticut via Facebook and Twitter. Those were later proven to be false.
Even before, Lawhorn had committed to Boston College before decommitting from the Eagles and opening up the possibility that he would reclassify to 2011. Instead, he is back in 2010 – and looking for a college again.
Lawhorn’s main recruiter at Fordham was interim head coach Jared Grasso, and he said that Grasso was the primary reason for committing to the Rams. When former Hofstra head coach Tom Pecora took over the job, Lawhorn cooled on Fordham.
“I didn’t really speak to [Pecora] and Grasso wasn’t there; that’s who I gave my trust to,” Lawhorn said.
He said he is unsure of which schools he will look at next.
