In My View 12/7/2018: Basketball recruiting

Vernon Carey

Vernon Carey, a five-star center from Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) University School, picked the Blue Devils in a commitment ceremony at his high school on Thursday over Michigan State and North Carolina. The addition of Vernon Carey Jr would have elevated MSU's recruiting class from good to elite.

Vernon Carey Jr, from University Prep, drives by a Gulliver Prep player during the Hoophall Miami Showcase in Miami previous year.

The college basketball world is caught up in the hype surrounding Duke's current crop of freshmen but it may not be too early to start getting excited about Mike Krzyzewski's next class of stars.

Carey joins Concord's Wendell Moore, a 6-5 forward, and Boogie Ellis, a 6-2 guard from San Diego, California, in Duke's 2019 class. "They see me as a positionless player, they said I can be anywhere on the court".

Obsidian's next RPG is The Outer Worlds, first trailer released
Obsidian Entertainment's latest game is set to be published by Private Division , a new indie label from Take-Two. Microsoft's acquisition of Obsidian last month won't affect The Outer Worlds' release.

Michigan State also tends to prioritize recruits from the Midwest, so the focus on Vernon Carey Jr has been a little out of character for the program. Barrett was already playing at a level that put him in the upper echelon of the sport, but is improving his ability to play within the team concept game by game. "His nimble footwork and soft touch is not talked about enough at his physically imposing size".

Blue Devils beat out UNC, Michigan St. for services of Vernon Carey Jr.

He's a decorated high school player and won a gold medal with USA Basketball over the summer. He was drafted second overall by the Sacramento Kings in the 2018 NBA Draft.

Duke has dominated the recruiting wars in recent years.
