Carson committed to St. Bonaventure on Labor Day and becomes the first recruit for Solomon and his staff in the Class of 2004. Last season, Carson averaged 18 points as a junior.
"I had visited up there and plus [assistant] Jason Gee is from the Springfield area where I'm from. Me and my parents sat down and agreed that there couldn't be situation for me. I don't believe there's a better situation for me than St. Bonaventure."
Carson was sold. Now, he's looking forward to a senior season with little pressure on him and he can go out and play his game. "That's a big thing. You can just go out and play and have fun and no worries. Just go out there have fun and be yourself."
And one more thing: Carson isn't a bad recruiter either so immediately he's going to start working for the Bonnies. "A lot of people don't know about St. Bonaventure. It's big time basketball. I want people to just look into it. It's not really out there but I'd like to sell people on it so they can see what I'm seeing."
