Unsigned Senior Spotlight - Christian Carmosino

Christian Carmosino is definitely a college caliber basketball player. 

That might not have been a foregone conclusion a year or two ago, but it is now. 

He's overcome significant adversity in that time, after a major surgery in the summer after his sophomore year that sidelined him for the better part of the next since months. 

Since then, not only has he taken both his body and his game to new levels, but he's also grown another five inches, so there's no denying that his best basketball remains in front of him.

Personal Statement

"I am a long guard that has a very good ability to shoot the ball. My length helps me shoot over defenders and limits the effectiveness of closeouts done on me. I am a good rebounder for my position and have a strong basketball IQ. Also, the quick release that I have really helps me make shots that others may not get off at all. I have good awareness on offense to move to the right spots in order to get the ball in a position where I can score, whether that be on back door cuts or drifting to a spot on the three point line that gives a driver a better passing lane to me. I’m also not afraid to take a charge, as I took the most on my team this season."


"I have coached Christian for five years and have witnessed his growth due to his hard work and commitment. He has worked hard to both improve his greatest strength, his shooting, while also adding moves and footwork that allow him to get to the rim...Christian also had to overcome a hardship, and although the surgery severely limited his ability to work out, as soon as he was medically cleared to exercise, Christian began non-contact workouts. Christian was extremely committed and put in the work necessary to catch-up for the time he missed and I was not surprised to see him ready for his varsity basketball season that December. He was also recognized with the RIBCA’s Courageous Award for all he had to endure. His perseverance and growth mindset are valuable assets that have helped Christian be successful and continue to develop despite having to overcome a major medical obstacle...Christian is extremely humble and well-liked by his teammates and coaches. His peers and coaches recognize his ability to lead and because of that, he was elected captain of the varsity basketball team this season. He is a hard working player, excellent student-athlete and Christian brings character and toughness to a team."
- David Tedeschi, Rhode Island Magic, Director

Scouting Report

Right now, he's a shot-maker with good positional size who is virtually automatic when his feet are set and becoming increasingly capable of making tough shots, both on the move and off the dribble. He also has deep range and a quick release. The key in projecting him out though is to consider the current data point, of where he is now, relative to where he was a year ago, and then two years ago. When you consider it from that viewpoint, his progression is very linear and so there's good reason to expect him to keep evolving, and taking his game to new levels in the next few years. There's plenty of stuff he can still work on, but it's very possible he's just scratching the surface of his potential.
