Solved The local variable player may not have been initiated

    So I'm working on a plugin to make it so that whenever you consume an item, you get randomly teleported. I've got the teleportation part down but I don't know what it means when it says "The local variable player may not have been initiated." I've looked all across the internet and can't find anything that has solved the issue. I know I need to declare something else but I'm not sure how to phrase it. Here is the method where the error occurs:

    (I don't know how to make it show up as code, sorry!)

    @EventHandler
    public void onConsume(PlayerItemConsumeEvent c) {
    Player player = (Player) player; //Where the error occurs is on the last "player" - i'm not sure what i'm supposed to put here
    Random r = new Random();
    int x = player.getLocation().getBlockX();
    int y = player.getLocation().getBlockY();
    int z = player.getLocation().getBlockZ();
    World world = player.getWorld();
    int newX = x + ThreadLocalRandom.current().nextInt(x + 1, x + 15);
    int newZ = z + ThreadLocalRandom.current().nextInt(z + 1, z + 15);
    Location newLoc = Location(world, newX, y, newZ);

    player.teleport(newLoc);

    }

    Anyone know what to do?

    do you have an variable called player outside of this method? if no
    then you should use
    Code:
    Player player = c.getPlayer();
