Seton Hall Leads for Kanty

Xavier has always been a major player in the recruitment of 6-foot-1 point guard Kareem Canty (Westwind Prep, AZ). He's had them as his favorite and was even very close to committing to the program.

After re-opening his recruitment and slowing things down, Canty realized that he would no longer consider Xavier as a possible destination.

After adding point guards Semaj Christon and Myles Davis, Canty has ruled out Xavier in his top three and is now considering Florida State, Miami (FL) and Seton Hall.

He also added that Seton Hall was leading.

During the last few chats that I've had with Canty he's continued to say that he has no timeline on his decision. But you have to think, Seton Hall is in great position to land Canty.

Recruiting Rundown

*Juco point guard Josh Mason received an offer from Alabama State and it only took him a day to figure out that's where he wanted to attend college and play basketball. He will be eligible to join the school during the 2011-12 school year.

*TJ Warren (Brewster Academy, NH) has narrowed his list of schools down to eight with Florida, Georgetown, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisville, North Carolina, North Carolina State and Texas.

*Travis Jorgenson (Rock Bridge, MO) has picked up major interest after some big-time performances this summer but has already put together a list of favorites. Jorgenson currently favors Boston College, Kansas State and Virginia.

*Jordan Loveridge (West Jordan, UT) was phenomenal during the Adidas 64 Showcase in Las Vegas. He has very soft touch around the rim, physical rebounder and has a very established and still developing inside-out game. After averaging around 27 points per game during the Adidas 64 he immediately picked up an offer from Santa Clara. He also has offers from BYU, Colorado State, Hawaii, Utah, Utah State and Weber State.

*Jodan Price (Detroit Country Day, MI) continued to rack up the scholarship offers. This past week before the second evaluation period, Price picked up three offers from DePaul, Duquesne and Minnesota. He has yet to narrow down his list of schools but with the clock ticking you'd expect it to come after July.
