Pitt BB Recruiting

2023 Top-100 Guard Carlton Carrington Commits to Pitt

Published

on

On Wednesday, class-of-2023 guard Carlton Carrington out of Baltimore, Maryland committed to Pitt over Stanford, George Mason, and others.

Carrington is a 6-foot-4 combo guard who plays for St. Frances Academy as well as Team Melo on the Nike EYBL circuit. Pitt head coach Jeff Capel and associate head coach Milan Brown have been recruiting the rising senior for over one year and hosted him on two visits. Carrington recently took an official visit to check out Pitt once more, which seemed to seal the deal in his recruitment.

“What stood out to me about the weekend was the amazing campus that Pitt has, plus the surrounding area,” Carrington told Pittsburgh Sports Now. “Also, just everything that the University of Pittsburgh has to offer aside from just athletics. Basketball wise, what stands out to me about Pitt is the amazing conference that they play in along with the coaches on the staff. Also, getting to see it, Pitt’s basketball facilities are really nice.”

247 Sports’ Director of Scouting Adam Finkelstein broke down Carrington’s game in a full scouting report.

“Carrington is a big combo-guard with terrific size and upside to his frame as he continues to fill-out and build up his body. He is a fluid open floor playmaker with the ball and has a very good mid-range pull-up game in the half-court. He needs to keep getting more consistent as a three-point shooter, but long-term he possesses potential as both a versatile scorer and playmaker. Defensively, he moves his feet well laterally and should be able to defend multiple positions, especially as he gets stronger. Overall, he’s a late-blooming talented big combo-guard with a high-ceiling.”

With the commitment of Carrington, Pitt now has the No. 9 2023 recruiting class in the nation according to 247 Sports. Carrington joins 2023 wing Marlon Barnes in Pitt’s 2023 recruiting class and becomes the second top-100 recruit (regardless of class) to commit to Pitt this week, as four-star Dior Johnson committed to the Panthers on Monday.

I was very torn about this offseason. Part of me wanted pitt to have a bad offseason so they could move on from capel after next year, But it’s hard to not get excited about all the talent he hads coming in. Hopefully capel is a good enough coach to get all this talent to play together.

Love this, love the Dior move, but I still need to see Capel KEEP and DEVELOP top recruits. We were all stoked when he landed his 2018 class. Don’t need to remind anyone how that worked out.
