Gonzaga D.C. Classic Evaluation: Tony Carr

Here is an evaluation of point guard Tony Carr from the Gonzaga D.C. Classic

Player: Tony Carr
School: Roman Catholic (Philadelphia, Pa.)
Position: PG
Height: 6-4
Class: 2016

Carr was offered by the Terps this summer, after a strong showing at summer camps. He's the latest star from famed Roman Catholic, and looks to be a legitimate high major floor leader with excellent size.

Carr has grown to 6-4, sees the floor beautifully, passes well and can defend. He doesn't force the issue, and lets the game come to him. Athleticially, Carr is above average, but has a well developed body, with long arms, and more than adequate quickness. Against Theodore Roosevelt (Washington, D.C.), Carr didn't really look to score that much, but rather orchestrated the offense and controlled tempo, which is exactly what you want your point guards to do.

At the Victor Oladipo/Tywon Lawson Camp this summer, Carr was much more offensively inclined, and he's proven he can score, mainly on drives and mid-range pullup jumpers. The one area in possible need of improvement might be Carr's long range shooting, but otherwise he appears to have the whole package as a major college point.

Carr has offers from Maryland, Penn State, Temple, LaSalle and others, and we expect that list to grow. Terps coach Mark Turgeon and two assistants were at his game Dec. 12, and we hear Cliff Warren watched him Dec. 13. There's little doubt that Carr is a high priority target.
