Juco Chris Cantino picks Xavier

Small forward Chris Cantino (Philadelphia, Pa./Palm Beach C.C.) has committed to Xavier.

His former coach at Rise Academy, Sam Rines, posted the following to his Twitter account:

"Chris Cantino has decided to attend Xavier. He committed to Iona at first but it was without moms blessing. Mom wanted Chris away so......"

The 6-foot-7, 220-pounder was rated as a two-star coming out of Rise Academy in 2010.
