Ever wonder what goes on when college basketball’s most elite coaches are inside the friendly confines of high school basketball’s most elite prospects?
Well, wonder no more.
Each week we’ll catch up with an elite hoops prospect who’s recently entertained a flurry of coaches for in-homes and have them hand out some of the most telling, albeit random, awards based on the visits.
This week we caught up with Pace Academy’s (Norman, Okla.) Wendell Carter Jr., who is ranked No. 2 overall in the ESPN 100 and recently hosted Duke and Georgia.
And the award for Biggest Appetite goes to… (Laughs) “The Georgia staff; more specifically Coach Jonas (Hayes) because he had three plates of my mom’s cooking! I understand though, because my mom threw down in the kitchen!”
And the award for Best Story goes to… “Coach K! He’s on NBA 2K and he was telling me about how they got him to do all of his faces when they were putting him on the game. He actually made each face that NBA 2K had him make and I was crying laughing! I thought that was funny and cool because we all play NBA 2K. It’s just cool that he’s even up there. ”
And the award for Best Presentation goes to… “That would probably be a tie between Duke and Georgia. They both showed videos and had great points about their vision for me. I was definitely impressed by both of them so I’m gonna have to say that both tied there.”
