Chris Cantino to transfer from Xavier


Xavier's Chris Cantino, a 6'7 forward out of George Junior Republic High School in Grove City, PA, and the Rise Academy in Philadelphia, will transfer from Xavier after red-shirting for the Musketeers last season. Cantino was previously a junior college transfer to Xavier out of Palm Beach State.


Cantino will have one year remaining to play for his new team, partly due to an NCAA violation that caused him to lose a year of eligibility after participating in a junior college showcase event after turning 21 years old. Iona, Old Dominion and Seattle were some of the schools involved in recruiting Cantino prior to his commitment to Xavier last year.
