We found out today that Keith Dambrot wasn’t done adding talent to his 2018 roster.
Today, while on his official visit, point guard Sincere Carry (Solon, Ohio) gave the Duquesne basketball program a verbal commitment. Carry becomes the sixth member of Duquesne’s Class of 2018 joining forward Gavin Bizeau (Plainfield, Indiana), forward Amari Kelly (Norcross, Georgia), forward Austin Rotroff (Wauseon, Ohio), center Dylan Swingle (Chillicothe, Ohio) and point guard Brandon Wade (Ann Arbor, Michigan).
Duquesne basketball on Pittsburgh Sports Now is sponsored by The Summit Academy: setting young men on the path to a better future.
Following his decision, Pittsburgh Sports Now caught up with Carry to learn more about him and his decision to join the Duquesne Dukes.
“I wasn’t really talking to anyone prior to this because I was committed to West Liberty but once I got my release, my dad and I started to talk with Coach D and Duquesne. We instantly created a bond and I came up today for a visit,” said Carry.
“I love everyone on the coaching staff and the vibe that they gave me. Everyone kept it real with me and I believed everything they told me. Plus, the campus, the dorms and the gym was amazing. I just like the direction that Duquesne basketball is headed.”
A scout described Carry (6-foot, 175 pounds) to me as someone with an unbelievable burst and great passing ability. He also told me that he thought Carry was really under recruited.
I asked Carry to give me a scouting report on himself and what kind of player Duquesne is getting.
“I play extremely hard the whole game and always give 100% percent on the court no matter what. I’m not a selfish player and really look to get all of my teammates involved offensively. I just do all the dirty work in order to help my team win.”
Carry is the second point guard that Duquesne has recruited in this class. I asked him what role the Duquesne staff envisioned him having next season.
“Coach just told me that I would definitely play next year but that I would have to work hard and let him coach me. I could either play a little or a lot depending on how hard I work,” said Carry.
With the addition today, Duquesne remains over their scholarship limit which means there will have to be some roster movement before the start of the season.
