Xavier officially adds Carter; Cantino to transfer out

Posted by Josh on Thursday, June 20, 2013 Under: Recruiting/Roster Updates
Some quick news and notes if you haven't been keeping up...
- As was expected last week, Mizzou assistant coach Rick Carter has left the Tigers and joined Chris Mack's staff at Xavier. He has served on Tom Izzo's staff at Michigan State as well as on the Western Michigan staff when current Muskie Matt Stainbrook played at WMU. Carter's big ties in the Michigan area should be helpful for XU's recruiting in that area. Welcome aboard Coach Carter!

- Chris Cantino, who transferred into X last year as apparently transferring out of X now. Rumors have been this is either due to a lack of playing time expected or academic issues. With the influx of talent on the Muskies roster this year, Cantino will get a lot more court time if he's at a smaller program so hopefully all works out well for him this fall. Good luck Chris! This does mean that Xavier now has an open scholarship spot for this fall. While most all high school seniors and would-be transfers are accounted for, there's always a few guys out there that could be picked up. Another alternative is giving this open scholly to Erik Stenger. Stenger started last season as a walk-on and was awarded a scholarship for the spring semester for his hard work and constant hustle.

- If you haven't heard, July 1st is Xavier Day in Cincinnati to celebrate our first day in the Big East! There will be festivities on Fountain Square in the afternoon and it's Xavier Night at the Reds game.

Go Muskies!
