UTEP men's basketball gets verbal commit from guard
El Paso, TX — Tim Floyd has landed one of the countries better guards. Shaquile Carr has committed to UTEP. Carr is a 6-1 guard and a three year starter at Las Vegas Canyon Springs High School. Carr is a great player but there is a possible problem, he is not as yet academically qualified.
Take a look at his numbers. Carr would get a lot of playing time at UTEP if he's eligible. Carr is 6-1 point guard, who averaged 14.3 points per game, 3 assists per game, and 2.7 rebounds per game. Now, he could enter school as a prop 48. Conference USA still allows players to enroll and become eligible if they earn 12 credit hours in each semester during their freshman season. That would count as a redshirt year and Carr would be responsible for his own expenses that season. Some encouraging news...Carr did post a 3.0 grade point average in high school during the fall semester.
