By SEAN BOCK D.J. Carton, the 6-foot-2 point guard from Bettendorf (IA), has solidified himself as one of the fastest rising prospects on the AAU circuit this summer. A member of the class of 2019, Carton has offers from schools such as Wisconsin, Nebraska, and Marquette and also has reeled in offers from Iowa, Minnesota, and Creighton. The latter three all coming on Monday.
Hawkeye Report. “My grandfather actually played at Iowa, so he, along with my family was very excited that I was offered by Iowa today.” Although Wisconsin seems to be the frontrunner in the early stages of Carton’s recruitment, according to the 247 Crystal Ball, high-major Midwest college programs including Purdue, Northwestern, Butler, Illinois, Iowa State, and Ohio State have stopped by and expressed their interest in Carton who says he’s in no rush to make a decision. “I’m planning to make some trips to schools in August,” told Hawkeye Report. “I want to get to Iowa in early August and then try and make it out to the other schools that have offered, like Creighton and Minnesota, along with Wisconsin, Nebraska, and possibly Marquette.” Carton plays for the Quad City Elite, one of the most highly regarded non-shoe sponsored teams on the AAU Circuit, and will be participating in the Jayhawk Summer Finale in Overland Park, Kansas for the final July evaluation period of 2017.
