WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

A second UNCW basketball recruit is looking for a new school in the wake of Kevin Keatts' departure to coach at NC State.

Josh Boutte, a 6'6" center from Louisiana, who signed with the Seahawks last fall, is reopening his recruitment.

Boutte said by phone Monday that this was his decision alone and he has not communicated with any other members of the recruiting class for UNCW. Boutte said he did talk with Keatts about his future too. He says there is no chance that he'll reconsider UNCW after exploring his options.

Boutte played two seasons at Dodge Community College on Kansas.

Clayton Hughes was released from his letter of intent with UNCW last week.

Boutte just wrapped up his sophomore season with the Conquistadors. He averaged 15.8 points and 11.7 rebounds per game this season.
