Washington Gets Jay Z’s Nephew Sr Nahziah Carter

Jay Z’s nephew, ESPN No. 54 ranked high school senior Nahziah Carter has committed to the University of Washington.

 

The 6-6 wing averaged 19 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 assists this season for Bishop Kearney HS (Rochester, NY), leading the team to a 16-7 record and the Section V Class AA semifinals.

 

Carter has also averaged 12.7 points and 4 rebounds this spring with Albany City Rocks on the Nike EYBL circuit.

 

He had consecutive 20-point games for Albany City in California during the Memorial Day Weekend with his famous rapper uncle in the stands.

 

“University of Washington commit. Go Huskies. Better late than never,” Carter said via Twitter.

 

Carter had originally committed to Dayton, but reopened his recruitment when head coach Archie Miller left to take the Indiana job.

 

He was considering reclassifying back into the 2018 class if he didn’t like his college offers after leaving Dayton.

 

But new Washington head coach Mike Hopkins knew Carter from his days at nearby Syracuse and wanted him with the program.

 

“He called the day he got there,” Carter told Zagsblog of coach Hopkins. “He contacted me immediately.”

 

The Huskies are getting a gem in the high-flying Carter.

 

“He has off-the-charts athleticism that makes him nearly unstoppable in transition, something fans come out to see,” wrote the Democrat and Chronicle’s Jeff DiVeronica.

 

His Albany City Rocks AAU coach Kevan Sheppard said Carter is a special player.

 

“His athleticism is ridiculous,” coach Sheppard told democratandchronicle.com. “He has the whole game. Nahziah is extremely skilled.”

 

“I’ve had the opportunity to watch him against some of the best talent in the country, guys that we’re now watching on TV at all the major schools and he held his own,” added Sheppard.
