    Jalen Carey, the 6-foot-3, 170-pound point guard from the Playaz and Montclair (N.J.) Immaculate Conception, named a final schools on Sunday.

    Carey listed Kansas, Miami, Rutgers, Syracuse, UConn and Villanova.

    At the Peach Jam, Carey said Syracuse and UConn were recruiting him the hardest, but all six schools watched him throughout July.

    “Those two schools [Syracuse and UConn] mainly,” he said.

    The No. 14-ranked point guard in the Class of 2018 by 247Sports.com, Carey plans to take all five official visits this fall.

    “I’m definitely going to take all five, just enjoy it,” he said at the Peach Jam. “I don’t want to rush anything.”

    As for a timetable on signing, he said, “Most likely I want to sign before my high school season starts but I don’t want to rush or anything.”
