Duquesne Basketball Recruiting

Butler HS Star Devin Carney Stays Home, Commits to Duquesne



Keith Dambrot has recruited a WPIAL star to play at Duquesne.

Butler High School star guard Devin Carney has announced his intentions to play his college basketball for the Duquesne Dukes. Carney originally committed to Elon but recently de-committed after their head coach Mike Schrage left for an assistants position at Duke.

Setting young men on the path to a better future.

Despite receiving recent offers from St. Bonaventure, UC Santa Barbara, Chattanooga, Georgia State and Miami (Ohio), plus previous offers from George Mason, Rice, Radford, Holy Cross, North Carolina A&T and Rice, Carney decided on Duquesne following his official visit their last week.

It’s been awhile since the Dukes have gotten a commitment from a high school player from the WPIAL. In fact, it goes all the way back to Chartiers Valley’s TJ McConnell in 2009.

Local players like James Ellis (Westinghouse), Maceo Austin (Kennedy Catholic), Jett Roesing (First Love Academy) have suited up for the Dukes but McConnell was the last WPIAL player to commit to Duquesne out of high school. Sharp shooter Micah Mason played for Duquesne but transferred in from Drake.

The Duquesne program has added a player that is a prolific scorer. This past season, Carney averaged 25 points per game and finished his high school career as a 2,000-point scorer.

Carney was the second player that committed to Duquesne on Tuesday, joining Florida International transfer guard Tevin Brewer.

The roster additions aren’t done yet as PSN expects Duquesne to add a couple more players.
