After spending less than a week at Arlington Country Day (Jacksonville, Fla.), star guard Aquille Carr transferred to Princeton Day Academy (Beltsville, Md.) and began classes on Wednesday, according to his uncle.
“He just wanted to be closer to home,” Hilbert Hebron said. “He said he really likes it there. So that’s good. We’re happy that he’s happy.”
Carr, a senior who is committed to Seton Hall, transferred to Arlington Country Day in late October from Patterson (Baltimore), where he won the 4A state title and was named the Baltimore Sun’s All-Metro Player of the Year after averaging 24 points and eight assists a game.
In August, Carr was arrested on domestic assault charges, which were dropped a month later on the condition that he completes a 22-week program at a domestic violence center.
Last summer, Carr became just the fifth high school player to be featured alone on the cover of Dime Magazine. He's widely known as “The Crimestopper” because it’s said that when he’s playing Baltimore’s crime rate drops.
“He’s focused now,” Hebron said. “He knows that he has a lot to accomplish, but he’s focused and he’s got strong support.”
