Kyle Rittenhouse announced last week that he would be attending Texas A&M during an appearance on “The Charlie Kirk Show.”
“I’m going to be going there, and it’s going to be awesome,” Rittenhouse said after placing a Texas A&M hat on his head. “Beautiful campus, amazing people, amazing food.”
But the university spokesperson told Dallas Morning News on Sunday that Rittenhouse will not be attending.
“He has not been admitted as a student this summer or fall,” Texas A&M spokeswoman Kelly Brown said in an email to the outlet.
Rittenhouse was charged with first-degree reckless homicide, first-degree intentional homicide, attempted first-degree intentional homicide for fatally shooting two men, Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, and injuring a third during protests in Kenosha, Wis. in August 2020, following the police shooting of Jacob Blake.
Rittenhouse claimed he acted in self-defense and was acquitted of all charges by a jury last year.
He was enrolled in online classes at Arizona State University but dropped out during the trial and planned to resume his studies later. But officials from ASU said last year he was no longer enrolled there.
