No. 34 Jr Jalen Carey To Pick College In October

No. 34 Sr Jalen Carey Commits To Syracuse

ESPN No. 34 ranked high school junior Jalen Carey will make his college decision on October 11, which just happens to be his birthday.


He will choose between a final three of Syracuse, UConn, and Miami.


“I’m mainly focused on these three schools, it’s been a long process,” Carey told Zagsblog. “I think now it’s just time to focus on these three schools and make a decision by next month.”


The 6-4 point guard out of Immaculate Conception (Montclair, NJ) averaged 18.6 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 2 assists for NJ Playaz on the Nike EYBL circuit this summer.


“Carey has excellent size for the point guard position,” reads the Black Cager Scouting Report’s analysis. “He exhibits a terrific feel for the game [and is] extremely mature for his age and rarely forces the issue offensively.”


“Carey understands the game, reads the floor well, and looks to get his teammates involved,” adds the website. “Offensively, Carey can get to the basket with either hand, showing great timing and a knack for getting off his shot in a variety of ways.”


Here’s what he had to say about his three top schools:


“[At Syracuse] they think I can come in and play right away, put the ball in my hands and make plays for others,” said Carey. “[At Miami] they feel like they can develop me into that NBA player that they think I can be.”


“[UConn plays] with multiple guards, multiple ball-handlers,” added Carey. “[Coach Kevin Ollie] feels like that’s their best way to win. He feels like if I come, I would be able to help their program as well.”


Stay tuned.
