On Wednesday, one of the best players in the Pittsburgh area, Devin Carney of Butler, de-committed from Elon.
First off I want to thank the coaches and staff at Elon who recruited me. This was not an easy decision to make. With that being said, due to coaching changes that have taken place, I have decided to reopen my recruitment.

The 6-foot-1 combo guard initially committed to Elon back on July 1, 2021, but after head coach Mike Schrage left for an assistant position at Duke, Carney decided to reopen his recruitment.
Prior to his commitment to Elon, Carney, a 2,000-point scorer at Butler, held offers from Duquesne, Holy Cross, George Mason, Furman, Rice, North Carolina A&T, Radford, Northern Illinois, and more.
This season, he averaged over 25 points per game as a senior. He is known for being a smooth scorer from all three levels and a solid defender. Carney’s poise and understanding of the game were as good as anyone’s in the area, and he will combine those with his scoring ability to land another Division I opportunity elsewhere.
