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.
