Kareem Canty Plans Two Visits

Posted by CoHoops DeAnte Mitchell
Kareem Canty, a 6-foot-1 point guard out of Bridgton Academy (MA) has recently seen a boost in his recruiting.

Canty, just this week, has heard from Cincinnati, Providence, Texas, and West Virginia.

He currently holds scholarship offers from Iowa State, Providence, Rutgers, Texas A&M, Seton Hall and there are reports of many more.

The 6-1 guard confirmed that Cincy, Providence, Texas and West Virginia contacted him but also said, "The hardest [programs] recruiting me are Texas A&M, Providence, Xavier, Seton Hall and Dayton."

Canty is a great offensive player and a tough matchup at the point guard position. His ability to get to the rim and finish is just one of the many things college coaches like about him.

He's also a great playmaker. With the ball in his hands, Canty is going to make plays for himself, or teammates more likely than not. He's the ultimate competitor and always wants to put his team in position to win the game.

As he continues to improve his decision-making, Canty will certainly be a hot topic in 2012.

He plans to visit two schools, one in May and one in June. "I'm visiting Xavier Memorial Day weekend and Texas A&M on the first weekend of June," Canty said.

As of now, the recruitment end is not in sight. There is no timeline for the junior or favorites at this time.
