Bloomington – Indiana had hoped to possibly secure a commitment as early as today for the 2010 class following the official visit of Moses Abraham.
Instead, the Hoosiers have lost a verbal from its 2011 crop.
Mark Carlino confirmed for Hoosier Nation tonight that his son, Matt, informed the IU staff this afternoon that he plans to re-open his recruitment.
The 6'2" guard originally committed to Indiana in August of 2008 after a standout freshman campaign at Highland H.S. in Gilbert, Ariz. After another season at Highland, Carlino moved to Bloomington, where he averaged 13.3 points, 4.8 rebounds and 4.3 assists for a Bloomington South team that won its first 23 games before falling to Jeffersonville in the regional final.
Matt told Scout.com's Evan Daniels that he felt the need to re-consider his options.
""Coach Crean and his staff have been great to me," Carlino wrote in a text message. "However, I feel that I committed too early and although I like Indiana, I felt it would be good to explore other options."
It is unclear whether the Carlinos will remain in Indiana for Matt's senior year of high school or if they will return to Arizona.
Hoosier Nation will have more on Carlino as it becomes available.
