COLLEGE OFFERS: Iona, LIU, Stony Brook, and Albany

Favorite School: No leader right now in his recruiting process

DECISION: During the basketball season

STRENGTHS: Dorvell is a good shooter who has three-point range on his perimeter game

WEAKNESS: Carter needs to add some additional muscle to his frame to help his score more consistently around the rim against the bigger bodies that defend in the low part of the paint

EVALUATION: Dorvell is a long lanky player so he has some room to fill out his frame and be a more effective offensive player around the basket.

Carter is a good shooter with nice range. He hails from one of the country's top programs in Rice High School under Maurice Hicks.

As he adds some more pounds and muscle to his frame, Dorvell should be one of the better recruits in the New York area. It's likely the mids around this area along with the lows will be trying to recruit him hard.
