Prep Star Aquille Carr is Considering Playing Overseas Instead of College

by February 25, 2013

One of the most entertaining players to watch in all of high school basketball, Baltimore’s Aquille Carr, has been verbally committed to attending Seton Hall since last year. And while he hasn’t backed out of his commitment (yet), he did hint in a recent interview that he hasn’t ruled out foregoing college and instead going pro overseas. From the Baltimore Sun: “‘Seton Hall is still my choice right now,’ he said of the school to which he committed orally last year. ‘But I’m thinking about a lot more stuff that I could advance to. I think I’m ready to make it like my job. If you know about basketball, you know what that means. By the end of the season, everybody will find out.’… Carr smiles and nods when asked whether he’s intrigued by following in (Brandon) Jennings’ footsteps. ‘His path is similar to mine,’ he says. ‘He grew up in a hard city, sort of like mine. I think that was the right way for him to do what he had to do. Now he can provide for his family more. I think that could be a possible way for me to provide for my family.'”
