The 18-year-old was found not guilty on Friday after shooting three black lives matter protesters, killing two of them, last year with his AR-15 rifle. After an intense two-week trial, the 12-person jury let him walk out of the Kenosha courtroom as a free man.

While Rittenhouse has yet to address the press, his rep didn't wait around. Immediately following the not guilty decision, his spokesperson, David Hancock, gave insight as to what is next for the teen. Rittenhouse is reportedly looking forward to "living a normal life," and that includes college.

Which one you might ask? ASU to study nursing.

This mirrors what Rittenhouse said on the stand last week. Under oath, he identified himself as a college student at ASU. He also claimed he was studying nursing.

However, that's not quite accurate, according to the university spokesperson, Jay Thorne.

Following his testimony, ASU confirmed Rittenhouse was part of their online non-degree-seeking program. Thorne later clarified, “Kyle Rittenhouse has not gone through the admissions process with Arizona State University and is not enrolled in the Edson College of Nursing and Health Innovation."

Thorne said that simply means has has "access to begin taking classes" while he prepares "to seek admission into a degree program at the university."

After the not guilty verdict and his spokesperson's decision to double down on the ASU planning, Twitter went wild. "Kyle Rittenhouse is going to be a freshman at arizona state next year. do what you want with that information," one person wrote.

"We don't want him," claimed another. "Plans on attending Arizona State University.. he's a known shooter, so protect yourself!" commented someone else. "It’s good to know the Kyle Rittenhouse goes to school at Arizona State we should go find him," threatened a fourth.

Radar reached out to the university, who refused to comment on how they will protect Rittenhouse on campus if he's accepted.
