    score one for Seton Hall. He’s going to be a good college player.

    One of the most exciting PG’s out there!

  • fruizm

    He’s definitely talented, I hope he makes it at the next level!

  • bike

    Guessing this kid is playing against top HS talent since his school is in east Baltimore — should be pretty good in college.

    BMore stand up!!

  • Patrick

    would’ve loved to see him in a maryland uni but i’m rooting for the kid

  • underdog

    I hope he develops a reliable J and some remarkable passing skills. He’s gonna need them.

  • riggs

    he better evolve because his style at the college level is not gonna translate. wish him the best though, stay level headed.

    His off the dribble game is a work of art.

  • bukey

    who cares ? malik starkes is 2 years younger and he killed carr when he came to philly.

  • Eric

    Not even that hard to stop him. Here’s what you do, Force him left.

  • Kilo

    Picked Seton Hall over all that money in Italy? Why?

  • robb

    what riggs said

  • Hursty

    Absolutely no indication of a left-hand.
    I guess Seton Hall is hoping he grows a couple of inches.
    All the best to him, regardless.

  • http://slamonline.com The Philosopher

    Lenny Wilkens had no right hand.

  • Robin

    this kid is too good. he has the passion.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Lefties can get away with being one-handed a lot better than righties because almost everyone in the league is right-handed and can guard that side of his man.

    Not as intrigued with this kid as others are…

  • KSupreme

    Too many haters!!! All the stuff people are saying here has probably already been said to the kid….and he’s proving doubters wrong…..gtfo

  • MrAir239

    I’ve seen this dude play, he’s quick and savvy. Could grow just 2-3 more inches but with hardwork and dedication, he’ll be a star in seton hall. Needs to develop a left hand though and pass a bit more often but he’ll learn in time.

  • Ryan

    @YKnoT he is standing up he’s just short.

  • http://slamonline.com Darkside

    He’s the next SPUD WEBB for sure he’ll be an assist leader if he stays in school.

  • Yesse

    This kid is dope. Can’t wait!

  • horsey

    He’s a junior in high school. Maybe let him play the game we all love before saying we’re not impressed and it won’t translate. If anyone on this thread had handles/game like that they probably wouldn’t be on the internet as much. Let the kid play.

  • http://slamonline.com The Philosopher

    Stephon Marbury had no left hand…

  • Bx Baller

    Interesting pick, must have been a nice check attached to the offer. Hope he does well, i love his game

  • love

    he can dribble with his left hand u cant force him left if u do he’ll speed by u and go back to his right hand

  • http://www.facebook.com/joe.l.brewer3 BlackPhantom

    This guy’s handles are amazing.

  • 400SOAVE

    Carr will be playing for SHU head coach Kevin Willard and associate head coach Shaheen Halloway.

    Both of those men were point guards in the BIG EAST. Their Xs & Os knowledge is outstanding. Willard coached for the Boston Celtics. Holloway is the all-time leader in assists at SHU. He lead the Pirates to the NCAA Sweet Sixteen.

    Carr will be practicing and playing for two of the most knowledgable coaches when it comes to improving and developing the skills of a point guard. Carr is already very skilled. He’s going to get much better when he’s surrounding every day with two great basketball minds.

    Excited to see him play live in about 3 hours. I’ll have updates on the liveblog we’re running on the homepage.

  • robertmavs

    amazing…im watching his video in youtube…lol

  • T-Money

    if he gets that automatic j like boykins, he has a shot. he’s crafty enough to create separation, just a matter of he can hit a 15-footer like a lay up.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OCJwoEHRU_A&feature=related TheKid

    this is a good choice for carr. SH is a great fit that compliments his play style. Hes a pure scorer the Hall lets those types of players go and do what they want. Example Jeremy Hazell. I wouldnt be surprised if hes up there next year in the ppg column. plus their coaches were pgs so hell learn more about being a true pg

  • Taylor

    I can’t wait to see this kid play!! Seton Hall is going to have a new star! Those NBA guys better watch out

  • DieselMechanic

    one and done
