2017 guard Marcus Carr just verbally committed to Pittsburgh, according to Northern Kings coach Vidal Messiah.
“They’ve been recruiting him the longest,” Messiah explained to Scout. “Since they were at Vandy.”
“Marcus is a very loyal person,” he added. “He’s been with me since the 7th grade and loyalty had a lot to do with it. They never stopped recruiting him when he got hurt last year.”
Carr, a 6-foot-2 combo guard, picked Kevin Stallings’ Panthers over Clemson, Cincinnati and Virginia Tech.
“From a exposure and fit standpoint the ACC is as good as it gets in college basketball,” Messiah said. “He has a chance to start right away and help usher in a new era in Pitt basketball.”
Playing for the Northern Kings this summer, Carr proved himself as a talented scorer and playmaker. Messiah thinks Carr can help them playing both on and off the ball.
