Kentucky has now jumped into a recruitment that includes Duke, North Carolina, Oklahoma State, VCU and Virginia Tech.
Vernon Carey, 6-10 F, Nike Team Florida, 2019 Fresh off winning a gold medal with the U17 team in Argentina, Carey brought his A game to Peach Jam. He played a big part in handing Team Takeover its only loss of the EYBL season, going for 25 points on 10-of-14 shooting with eight rebounds in a 71-60 win. He also had 23 and 10 in a 70-69 loss to James Wiseman and Bluff City. Duke and Miami are the clubhouse leaders for Carey, who is also considering Kentucky, Michigan State and North Carolina.
