At least that's the way it looks right now. According to the Clayton Daily News in Jonesboro, Ga., Rashad Canty, who made a verbal commitment to attend Appalachian State University back in June, has apparantly changed his mind.
But the 6-foot-4 wide receiver from Riverdale High School in Riverdale, Ga., hopes to settle the issue by the end of the week. Following a recent visit to Wake Forest University this past weekend, Canty, who is listed as a two-star recruit by Rivals.com, was guaranteed a roster spot, if I be faithful to them and committed to them, they will be faithful to me.
But a pair of Southeastern Conference schools, Missouri and Vanderbilt, are still in the running. And Canty, whose had more than 20 offers from schools around the country, including some in the Atlantic Coast Conference, SEC and Big Ten Conference, has received scholarship offers from App State, Wake Forest and Minnesota.
Canty caught 34 passes last fall for Riverdale for 535 yards and five touchdowns for a team that went 4-6 last fall. His best game of the season came against against Grady, where he caught ten passes for 166 yards and a TD in a 35-34 loss.
National Signing Day is February 5. Nine of the top ten recruits, and 39 of the top 50, have already committed.
