Indiana will have one of its top class of 2023 targets on hand when the Hoosiers face Rutgers on Wednesday night in Bloomington.
6-foot-7 forward Coen Carr arrived at IU yesterday for an official visit.
A Hampton, Ga. product, Carr attends Legacy Early College prep school in South Carolina. In 11 games on the NIBC circuit playing against top national competition, Carr averaged 15.5 points while shooting 58.2 percent from the field. He doesn’t shoot a high volume of 3-pointers, and made 4-of-10 from deep in NIBC contests. Carr added 5.3 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game.
Below is a highlight reel of Carr’s junior season. The Daily Hoosier watched multiple games live when he played up in LaPorte, Ind. earlier this year. What jumps off the page is his elite level of athleticism and high-energy motor. Carr is lethal in transition. He is also very capable as a switching defender, something that fits Mike Woodson’s system well. Schools will be watching to see how he develops as a creator with the ball, and as a shooter during the spring and summer.
Carr recently announced a list of his top ten schools – Auburn, Arizona State, Clemson, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Indiana, TCU, Tennessee, Tennessee State, and Vanderbilt.
Vanderbilt, Arizona State, Indiana, Georgia, and Tennessee are the schools he told On3’s Joe Tipton he wants to visit officially this spring and summer.
For AAU basketball Carr plays with the Georgia Stars on the Nike EYBL circuit. He has said he plans to make a college decision after the AAU season.
Indiana currently has class of 2023 verbal commitments from fellow Georgian Jakai Newton, along with Ohio-based point guard Gabe Cupps.
