J.P. Carroll is a talented and diminutive point guard for Lawrence North (Ind.) High School. He’s wildly athletic and versatile despite his relative size disadvantage.
And what’s a size disadvantage when you can jump like Carroll?
Now that is elevation, folks.
With Carroll helming the offense, Lawrence North has pushed out to an 18-7 record. The Indiana Elite Fastbreak AAU player may be too small to land at the top of the radar of elite Power 5 programs like Kentucky, North Carolina and Duke, but some college program is going to land a savvy, athletic guard with great vision and the ability to jump right out of the gym. And that’s not nothing.
