The Wesleyan Christian basketball program in High Point, N.C., has been in the news of late because No. 1 overall player Harry Giles III has decided to transfer to Oak Hill Academy in Mouth of Wilson, Va.

But the program recently added 6-5 wing David Caraher from Chapel Hill (N.C.) High.  Caraher, who will be a junior, is ranked among the top 100 players in the Class of 2017 by Scout.com.

Caraher recently decommitted from Butler,  telling Gannett partner The Indianapolis Star that he “jumped the gun a little early on it.”   He had committed in February and it is rare for Butler to offer a scholarship to a high school sophomore. The decision to separate appeared mutual.

Wesleyan Christian went 30-5 and was the North Carolina Independent Schools Athletic Association 3A runner-up. The team finished at No. 18 in the final Super 25 rankings of the season.
