Kyle Rittenhouse, the Illinois teen acquitted of fatally shooting two men in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in 2020, has hinted he may be attending Texas A&M University in the fall, after leaving former alma mater Arizona State last year following student protests demanding his withdrawal from campus.

While visiting the Lone Star State, 19-year-old Rittenhouse - who was acquitted for the August 2020 deaths of Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, last November - took to Instagram to air his scholarly ambitions to his 202,000 followers.

'ASU has been fun but becoming an Aggie might be better,' Rittenhouse captioned one post earlier from College Station - a town in the central part of the state where the school is located - referring to the university's nickname for its student body.

In another post days later, Rittenhouse wrote he was considering staying in Texas, with an accompanying image showing the teen sitting in an oversized chair that bore the university's logo and an inscription of its popular catchphrase, 'Howdy.'

'I'm thinking about staying,' Rittenhouse wrote in the photo's caption.

It was unclear from the posts whether Rittenhouse was seriously considering attending the school, which is located a short drive from the state's three most populous cities, Austin, Dallas, and Houston.

The deadline to enroll for the upcoming fall semester passed last December. A rep for the school told DailyMail.com Tuesday that the school currently 'does not have a student' enrolled under Rittenhouse's name, nor have they received an application.

However, the teen has said that he would likely change his name if he ever returned to a college campus.

In the series of posts theorizing his potential return to a college campus, Rittenhouse saw a flood of support from his hordes of followers, with many suggesting the school - one of the more conservative public institutions in the US - would welcome him with open arms.

'You'll fit right in,' one user commented.

'Probably a lot more accepting than ASU,' another wrote, referencing the student-led campaign last year during and after Rittenhouse's highly publicized trial to have him booted from Arizona State.

'We’d love to have you,' another remarked.

Rittenhouse had a brief stint last year at the Phoenix university, where he was registered part-time for a non-degree online course, which he did not complete.

The teen then disenrolled from the school three months into the fall semester, shortly after he was found not
