Khadeen Carrington Enjoyed Unofficial to UConn Thursday, Plans to Visit Cincinnati, St. John's
According to his mother, Lima, Khadeen liked what he heard.
"It was good," Lima said on their drive back from Storrs to Brooklyn. "We had a look at the foundation (of the practice facility), they explained everything. They think he's going to be a great asset for the program. They expressed a high interest in having him. He is the type of guard that they're looking for for 2014."
In other words, a combo guard, according to Lima, who said her son is a "great scorer, but actually plays really well at the point, too."
Carrington made no decision on Thursday and probably won't until early in his senior season next fall. He is hoping to visit both Cincinnati and St. John's in the near future.
"We're definitely not going to rush the process," Lima said. "We'll take everything in and process it as a family. Khadeen is going to ultimately let us know where he feels the most comfort level. As his mom, I'm going to give help to him, help him make sure wherever he goes is what's best for him."
Carrington knows both Kentan Facey and Terrence Samuel pretty well, having played against Facey's Long Island Luthern team about a month ago (L.I. Lutheran won, but Carrington played well).
“Def. not gonna rush the process, take everything in, process it as a family. Khadeen is going to ultimately let us know where he feels the most comfort level. As his mom, I’m going to give help to him, help him make sure wherever he goes, what’s best for him.”
Carrington will play this summer for the New York Lightning AAU team, which is coached by former UMass standout Dana Dingle.
“He’s a hard-nosed kid, explosive, he can do a number of things," Dingle said. "He knows how to fill it up, put the ball in basket and has a will to win ... He's pretty much one of the top three (2014) guards in the city."
