SCSU Scores Late with Local Forward
Southern Connecticut State University added another piece to their incoming 2013 recruiting class recently with a commitment from Master’s School senior forward Austin Carter.
The six-foot-six forward ran with the New York Lightning on the 2012 EYBL circuit and saw wide-ranging division I interest and recruitment throughout the course of his high school and AAU careers.
He joins a SCSU recruiting class that already included two other local products in Marianapolis Prep post-grad Mike Mallory and Masuk senior guard Dominic Migliaro, along with California native Jonathan Paul.
Carter is an athletic six-foot-six forward who covers the court with ease, is capable of defending multiple positions, and a threat to play above the rim on both ends of the floor. With a consistently enhancing offensive game, he projects as someone capable of having a strong career in the Northeast-10 Conference.
SCSU’s frontcourt looks very formidable for the foreseeable future as Carter will team with rising sophomore Stefon Williams to form one of the NE-10’s most athletic forward tandems, while former NMH big man Lucas Van Ness is one of the league’s only true centers.
