Auburn basketball: Kareem Canty commits to transfer from Marshall to AU ... again

The former point guard for the Marshall Thundering Herd gave his commitment once again to transfer to Auburn.

After Kareem Canty, the point guard formerly from Marshall, had decided to transfer, things seemed set in stone when Canty gave his commitment to Auburn back in April to play basketball for the Tigers. Oddly enough, his recruitment to Auburn took a twist, when Canty committed to play basketball for South Florida in early May. Now, Canty has flipped back to head coach Bruce Pearl and the Tigers again, making what Auburn fans hope is his final decision.

Having already been given a release from Marshall, the 6'1, 185-pound point guard will add to a class of incoming talent including Sam Logwood III, Jack Purchase, JUCO F Cinmeon Bowers, and transfer K.C. Ross-Miller. With Ross-Miller being a graduate transfer, he'll be eligible for one season, which could mean that fans might have Canty as their future point guard the next three seasons.

As a freshman for the Thundering Herd, Canty averaged 16.3 points per game, 2.2 rebounds per game, and 5.5 assists per game. During the season, Canty shot 37 percent from the floor with a 30 percent mark from three-point range. Canty was decent from the free throw line, shooting 72 percent.

Canty has to sit out this upcoming season, but will have three years of eligibility once the season is over, adding depth to the point guard position. Since Ross-Miller should have things wrapped up at that spot, there's less to worry about in the interim.
