HS Baller to Europe?
Basketball pundits are saying that Aquille Carr, a sophomore point guard at Baltimore's Patterson High, may be the best player in his class in America, and with good reason. Carr has a 48-inch vertical leap and almost cartoonishly sick, And1 tour-type handles.
Unfortunately, there are two things that may stand in between Carr and NBA stardom. First of all, at 17 years-old, Carr is a full year older than the rest of his class, which could affect his recruitment. He's also short, standing either 5'6" or 5'7", depending on who you ask.
Thankfully, it looks like Carr won't have to worry about college ball, and may be able to dictate his own terms to the NBA if they ever become interested. Lottomatica Virtus Roma, the club that signed Brandon Jennings right out of high school, have offered Carr a contract worth $750,000 per year if he's willing to skip his last two years of high school. Carr isn't completely sure if he'll take the deal or not, although I'm not totally sure what the argument against taking the deal would be.
At any rate, here are two highlight reels and an interview. Enjoy.
