LAS VEGAS —   Nobody ever wants to  be first.

Stuck in the dilemma   as  most sleeper recruits,   Racine Park 2019 guard Larry Canady is  getting a ton of nibbles from Division 1 programs,  but continues to wait for the first school to pull the trigger.   After a successful  campaign in the  Under Armour Association and  finishing out the summer well  with the Wisconsin Playground Warriors  in Las Vegas,   Canady  hasn’t grown annoyed with the process  even though that first scholarship continues to elude him.

“It’s not frustrating at all, because I know my time will come,” Canady told Prep Hoops Wisconsin. “If it’s not now, it’s going to be some time.   I know it will come.”

Canady averaged 13.3 points per game in the UAA, shooting 42 percent from the field, including 38.0 percent  from downtown. 

UW-Green Bay, South Dakota, UW-Milwaukee,  Butler, Eastern Illinois, and Wright State are all showing interest.

“They just want me to stay focused and keep doing what I’m doing,” he said. “They like  that I can play both ways. I  can score and lock down my man.”

Canady attended camps at Eastern Illinois and Wright State in June.   As a junior,    he posted 17.0 points and 4.5 rebounds per game, while leading the Panthers to  a 21-5 overall record and a sectional   final appearance.

In no rush to make a decision, Canady plans  to remain uncommitted   throughout his senior season and sign  in the spring.

“I’m going to play it out,” he said.
