Elite prospect Carey picks Duke
Vernon Carey, perhaps the greatest prospect South Florida has ever produced, is joining the Duke Blue Devils.
The five-star center from University School made his college choice in a ceremony televised live on ESPN from Davie.
The senior picked Duke over the North Carolina Tar Heels and Michigan State Spartans, his other two finalists.
Carey made his announcement sitting behind a row of hats from the three schools.
He pulled a Blue Devils handkerchief out from a chest pocket inside his jacket and declared he would be, “joining the brotherhood” with coach Mike Krzyzewski and Duke.
New Mexico: Head coach Paul Weir apologized for the actions of some of his players before Tuesday’s game against rival New Mexico State in Las Cruces.
Weir said in a statement that he was extremely disappointed and wanted to apologize to everyone at New Mexico and at NMSU.
He said he was embarrassed and described the behavior as unsportsmanlike.
