The above video is from a 2021 report on Kyle Rittenhouse under new borrowing restrictions after he allegedly displayed racial slurs at a Wisconsin bar.
His announcement comes a day after a spokesman for Texas A&M told the Texas Tribune on Sunday that Rittenhouse had not been accepted into the Tier One research university, despite his claims about his plans to attend this summer or fall.
“Unfortunately, the end of my high school career was stolen from me,” Rittenhouse wrote on Twitter Monday afternoon. “I didn’t have the time that other students had to properly prepare for the future. I look forward to visiting Blinn College District, a feeder school for Texas A&M, this year. I look forward to joining Texas A&M in 2023!”
Unfortunately, the end of my high school career was stolen from me. I didn’t have the time that other students get to properly prepare for the future.
I look forward to visiting Blinn College District, a feeder school for Texas A&M, this year.
I look forward to joining Texas A&M in 2023!

In a subsequent tweet, Rittenhouse said he plans to move to Texas at the end of June.
When Rittenhouse was 17, he drove from his home in Antioch, Illinois, to Kenosha, Wisconsin, in response to protests that a white officer had shot and killed a black man. Rittenhouse had said he wanted to help law enforcement protect property amid riots. He was accused of fatally shooting two men and injuring another with his rifle. He was acquitted of multiple offenses during his high-profile trial, in which he argued he acted in self-defense.
Blinn College is a community college in Brenham with a campus near Texas A&M in Bryan that has strong transfer partnerships with Texas A&M. In 2020, according to the college, 53% of its transfer students went on to Texas A&M.
Last Friday, Rittenhouse appeared on The Charlie Kirk Show where he said he was going to Texas A&M and made a big reveal by swapping his baseball cap for a Texas A&M hat.
“I’m going there and it’s going to be amazing,” Rittenhouse told Kirk. “Beautiful campus, great people, great food.”
Rittenhouse previously claimed he was studying nursing at Arizona State University before a head boy clarified that he was not enrolled and had not gone through the admissions process.
