Available wing Nahziah Carter excels at EYBL, reels in interest

Nahziah Carter thought he was headed to Dayton. But when Archie Miller left for Indiana, the 2017 prospect opted to reopen his recruitment. This past weekend he played in front of college coaches at the Nike EYBL.

The first session of the Nike EYBL gave college coaches an opportunity to scout new prospects, re-evaluate current recruits, but also check out possible available player for the 2017 class.

Among the potential available players is former Dayton signee Nahziah Carter, who backed out of his commitment following the Flyers coaching change. 

Over the weekend Carter played with the City Rocks on the EYBL circuit, averaging 15.5 points, while shooting a blistering 65.8-percent from the field.

“I think I played pretty well,” Carter said. “I think I should’ve finished a couple more shots that I took but I think I played pretty well for the most part.”

Carter is a long, athletic slasher that gets to the rim, is efficient on offense and has potential on the defensive end.

“Getting to the basket and stopping defensively,” Carter said when asked to describe his game. “I like guarding the best player on the other team.”

In terms of his recruitment, Carter has options.

“My plan is to go 2017 and go to college in the summer, but prep school in 2018 is just an alternative just in case I don’t find the right fit,” Carter said.

Which schools are showing the most interest?

GeorgetownGeorgia TechBoston CollegeConnecticutUMass and a few others I just cant think of right now,” he said.

As of this weekend, Carter said Boston College was the only school to offer. With his strong play at EYBL, more is sure to come, but Carter isn’t in a hurry to make a college choice.

“I want to take my time and not make any wrong decisions,” he said.
