No. 2 Jr Vernon Carey Picks Top 8 Schools

Watch No. 2 Jr Vernon Carey Highlights (VIDEO)

ESPN No. 2 ranked high school junior Vernon Carey Jr. has picked his top eight schools.   They are: Duke, Florida, Kansas, Kentucky, Miami, Michigan State, North Carolina, and UCLA.   “I just feel like I have good relationship with all their coaching staffs,” Carey told JayhawkSlant.com of his final eight. “I am probably talking to Duke, Michigan State and Miami the most.”   Here’s what Carey had to say about the three frontrunners.   “[Miami] Coach [Jim] Larranaga has been recruiting me since my eighth-grade year,” said Carey. “They are saying that what Michael Jordan was for UNC, I could be at Miami with how I can stay at home and be the man.”   “[With Michigan State] I feel like they have a big family connection and [Tom] Izzo is a great coach. I feel like they do a good job of developing their bigs,” added Carey. “[Duke assistant] coach [Jeff] Capel would love to have me on the team because he feels like I am a very versatile player.”   Carey, a 6-10 forward/center out of University School of Nova South (Fort Lauderdale, FL) averaged 17.1 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks for Nike Team Florida this spring in the Nike EYBL.   Carey was also the leading scorer and MVP of the USA U16 national team that won the gold medal at the FIBA Americas Championship in Argentina this summer.   Rivals loves Carey’s game.   “Carey has cemented his standing as one of the nation's elite prospects,” reads the website’s analysis. “He's a 6-foot-9 lefty that can extend the defense with the perimeter jumper, make the timely pass to the open teammate, finish through contact and rebound his area. Carey is everything one looks for in a high-level recruit.”   He is the son of former Miami Hurricanes and Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Vernon Carey Sr.     For more basketball news go to http://www.blacktoptv.com/
