College Basketball: Will Aquille Carr Shock the Nation and Pick Seton Hall?

Eric HampfordContributor IIINovember 5, 2016

In what could turn out to be one of the most shocking recruiting choices in recent years, Baltimore legend Aquille Carr might choose to continue his basketball career at Seton Hall University.

On Friday, before departing with his high school team for a tournament this weekend in Milwaukee, the 5'7" point guard tweeted that he was headed for the Big East school.

However, when Patterson head coach Harry Martin got wind of these initial reports, he defused the rumors by saying that next Thursday is when an official decision will come.

He also added, "I think there are still some things he is considering." If his mind isn't made up right now, the other contenders for the exciting point guard's services are heavyweights Baylor, Memphis and Maryland, among others. 

Though he is only a junior, he is already a legend in his hometown of Baltimore, known for his amazing quickness and ball handling skills. He is a nationally acclaimed Top 75 recruit in the country, who will bring energy and excitement immediately to the school he ultimately chooses.

The Patterson High School point guard is currently averaging over 20 points and five assists per game on the season, including a 36-point outburst against nationally ranked Lincoln High School of Coney Island.

If the Pirates can land the point guard, he will become the highest rated recruit to sign with Seton Hall since former prep stars Eddie Griffin and Andre Barrett did in 2000.
