thanks Darth- it just reinforces my belief that this kid is far more advanced than any stretch 4 or 5 we may have ever recruited. He will start next season and may even be anointed ROY as well as receive selection to the all CAA 2nd or 3rd team. Others may disagree, but I'm confident this kid will be our best player in Blue Hen history if he stays healthy and adds some muscle to his prodigious frame. Only exception, but improbable, would be an even higher rated player is signed by another school.

You go Mr. Carr :)

He will start next season? In front of one of the five returning starters? Based on what?

While Carr does look like he will be a good one, I do hope some posters on here temper their expectations a bit. He will still be a Freshman who needs to adjust to the college game. He’ll be coming into the perfect situation with most of the team returning, but I hope some on here don’t think he’s a bust if he’s not averaging 20/10 from day one.
Bump.

Joe and you guys- I beg to differ based on his creds, his videos year by year including all we've seen over the last few months, his consistency, his athletic ability with the size he brings, and even Darth's instagram today more fully showcases his left hand ability and aggressive style of play. He is not afraid to put the rock on the floor and or pop from the outside.It is a heck of a body of work with all his bball skills.He has been and is a winner.

If MI has him come off the bench instead, that's fine. But IMHO, MI won't want to take him off the court when he steps on the floor. Painter is the enforcer, Mutts is the hustler, and Carr is the complete package. They should be able to work together without any issue. Painter will probably improve by next season, but he is prone to foul issues and a lack of ball handling skill. Mutts is inconsistent, but in the right matchups is a big time contributor in the CAA. I believe Carr has is far advanced in comparison with our current frontcourt guys. Goss and Cushing would sit or get minimal minutes next season if they returned.

The future is bright if the entire team develops. Today will be somewhat of an indicator about the team's true progress under the gun.

I envision Painter having a similar career as Baptiste...somewhat avg first year then popped his senior year.

Nice writeup and zoom interview with "Dr" Carr. Really looking forward to seeing this young man in a Blue Hen uni.

thanks DD- I can't help but love the possibilities with this kid in our program. :) It's a darn shame that things didn't pan out as he envisioned it due to Covis-19. He would really have benefited having more time to mesh with the returning players after his high school season ended as well as receiving guidance in the weight room.. He is a class act.

you go DR Carr :wink:
