Wendell Carter is your Early EYBL Atlanta MVP


It was a slow start for most of Calipari’s recruits, until Wendell Carter took the court.  The 6’10” center scored 30 points on 13-17 shooting.  He pulled in 16 rebounds and blocked 3 shots in a one-point win.

Even more impressively, he did it all against DeAndre Ayton, the 7-foot #1 player in America.  Carter, the #4 player in the 247 Composite Rankings, has impressed scouts as of late, dropping some pounds and bringing more energy to the table.  That paid off defensively, holding Ayton to only 19 points and 10 rebounds.

Those who love to follow recruiting know him well, but the casual fan is familiar with his recruitment because he’s choosing between Kentucky, Duke and Harvard.

Here are some of Carter’s highlights from the last EYBL stop in Hampton, Va.

Early Results from Other UK Recruits:

Trae Young:  Kentucky’s point guard prospect had a fantastic first game.  His stat line was impressive — 23 points on 55% shooting, 6 assists, 5 rebounds, 2 steals — but I was more impressed by the name of the team he beat, Playaz Basketball Academy.

PJ Washington had a so-so game with 11 points, 5 rebounds in a 15-point win.

Gary Trent Jr. was on the same sauce as Hamidou Diallo.  Trent Jr. had a 5-23 shooting performance, missing all nine three-point attempts in a nine-point loss to CIA Bounce.  He finished with 11 points, 7 rebounds and 1 assist.

      I’ve never been mistaken as the smartest man in the world and I’m assuming Larry Pratt never has either. Nick responded to you because if you notice, he wrote the article so he obviously is affiliated with the KSR website and that is why he was unsure of why you comment was awaiting moderation”.

    Something is going on at Harvard. They got 4 top 100 players currently in the 2016 class, and for them to be on the radar for a guy this highly ranked seems fishy.
