Carrigan to cut down list in July

BABC big man Dimon Carrigan is an emerging star on the Nike EYBL AAU circuit. The 6’9” Carrigan has some top programs pursuing him and he’s now added another school to his offer list.

Playing the 4 and the 5, Carrigan has been one of the better defenders on the Nike circuit. He is averaging 9 points, 8 rebounds, and 4.5 blocks per game while averaging 18-20 minutes per game. His play has helped BABC qualify for the Peach Jam finals.


The most recent offer for Dimon comes from Georgia Tech. The offer came from Coach Tavaras Hardy. “I loved getting that offer. It is in a big city which I like a lot.” The warm climate in Atlanta is also appealing to Dimon. “I like the coaching staff at Tech.”


Right now, Houston and Miami are the two schools that Carrigan feels are recruiting him the hardest but he is also taking notice of Tech. “I have noticed an increase in mail that I get from them and the coaches are talking to me about coming to Georgia Tech.” If Carrigan were to name a top five right now, the schools would be Georgia Tech, Washington, Miami, Houston, and Wichita State.


Dimon plans to take a look at his offer list and then cut the list down to a manageable group of schools. He plans to announce that list in July. In the meantime, Dimon has started to look at which schools he’ll visit. “I am going to try and visit Wichita State and Creighton before going back to school.” Dimon plans to start taking his official visits in September. “I already have one to Houston set and that is on September 23rd.” Dimon also plans to take official visits to Georgia Tech, Miami, and Washington.  


A November 24th announcement of his college choice has been planned by Dimon. “The reason for that is that my family and all my best friends will be here and I want to announce it with them around as they mean a lot to me and have given me a lot of encouragement over the years.  I will sign the LOI in April.” Dimon plans to wait until April to see if there are any coaching changes at his college choice.


Location will be one of the factors that Dimon will be looking at in making his decision. “I like the big city.” Dimon will also look to his family to see how they feel about the schools he’s considering. “I want a school to be the one where my heart feels most comfortable.” Finally, Dimon will be looking for a school where he feels he might have a chance to make the NCAA tournament and possibly win a national championship. “To me that is very important. If it takes all four years, I will be there all four years.” Dimon doesn’t plan on letting the NBA get in the way of his college career.
