Kareem Canty verbally committed to play for the USF men’s basketball team May 13, but the point guard has now changed his mind and will transfer to Auburn, where he had originally committed.
The freshman has three years of eligibility left, but will have to sit out a year after playing at Marshall in his first season.
He averaged 16.3 points and 5.5 assists per game last season and would have been a source of depth for the Bulls, who will have two senior starting guards.
USF confirmed Wednesday that Canty is no longer with the team, opening up a scholarship for coach Orlando Antigua to use for the upcoming season.
Antigua was not available for comment.
