    Carl Cherenfant, the 6-foot-4, 190-pound shooting guard from Calvary Christian Academy (FL) and the Atlanta Xpress AAU program, took his second official to St. John’s last week and has one more visit scheduled to Memphis.

    He visited St. John’s Sept. 22-24.

    “It went well,” he told ZAGSBLOG. “I really enjoyed it. They talked about how I’m a piece they don’t have on the roster and how Coach Mike [Anderson] wants to use me in many different ways on the court to be effective right away.”

    Next up he will take an official to Memphis Oct. 14-16. Tigers coach Penny Hardaway was in Florida last week to see Cherenfant and five-star IMG forward Eric Dailey Jr.

    “Then I will make a decision after that in the month of October between my top 7,” he said.

    Cherenfant is also considering UCF, USF, South Carolina, LSU and Mississippi State.

    Cherenfant previously listed a number of factors involved in his decision.

    “I think the biggest things are obviously culture, a family environment, the coaching staff, teammates that are going to be there, how our goals align to have one big common goal, which is to win, and also help me be able to get to the next level after college,” he said.

    Ranked by 247Sports Composite as the No. 13 shooting guard and No. 91 overall prospect in the class of 2023, Cherenfant centers his game around his versatility.

    “I’m a two-way guard, big wing, versatile and can guard multiple positions,” he said. “Offensively, I can do many things on the floor, put pressure on the rim, make shots and make plays for others. My game is centered around versatility.”
