Rock Island 2014 point guard CJ Carr had a monster July with Quad City Elite 17U. He helped lead his team to a very successful month by getting in the lane at will scoring and making plays for his teammates.
The athletic floor general took his first official visit to SIU-Edwardsville over the weekend and broke down how it went with us.
“First I had a meeting with Coach Forrester. After that I met with a couple of advisors for my future major. Later on I toured some of the buildings and then got to get up and down with the guys in open gym. We also had lunch and dinner. I had a chance to hang out with some of the guys.”
What impressed him about SIUE on the visit?
“Everybody’s personality. From the track coach to the players. The coaching staff recruits nothing but good guys who made me feel welcome.”
Carr spoke about how he would fit in on the court.
“They have an up-tempo style of play. What I liked most was that the coach didn’t promise anything. I would have to work for my spot and minutes.”
Next up for the senior is an official visit to South Dakota State on September 28 and a possible trip to see Stetson.
