    KANSAS CITY — Class of 2025 four-star point guard Semetri Carr is planning a visit to Stanford sometime this summer whenever he has time, he told ZAGSBLOG.

    The 6-foot, 165-pound guard from The Branson School (CA) and the Oakland Soldiers EYBL program, has also been hearing mainly from LSU, Colorado, USC and Utah. He broke down each of those programs:

    Stanford: “It’s a beautiful campus. And you know academics are amazing there as well. Student athlete, so getting that education would be amazing. And it’s also close to home. So if I got to play close to home that would be cool. Little hometown hero have my fans backing me up. And with the program, they just got a new coaching staff with Washington State. They let their guards go. Kyle Smith, great coach. Wayne Hunter the assistant I’ve been knowing for a minute there at Washington State. So I would say their player development and how they let their guards go is how Stanford seems like one of the options right now.”

    LSU: “My guy Jalen Courtney-Williams, he was at Creighton then LSU. Man, big conference. They win. They go to the tournament a lot. Guards too there, they go. So that would be a cool spot as well.”

    Colorado: “I’ve been talking to the assistant coach Bill Grier. He’s cool. I think that would be cool because you get to be in Colorado. That area is a little different with the mountains. And then shoot, this year they have two pros. They also let their guards go. Cody Williams, he’s a dog. They got players that enter the league, so. That’s the ultimate goal. If I see players go to the league from there, I could do it as well.”

    USC: “Coach [Eric] Musselman, I took a phone call with him. And then he watched me play. He liked my energy and defense up there [in Indianapolis]. So I feel like he knows what I can do. Down in LA would be cool. I have to take a visit there as well.”

    Utah: “I have some connects there. That one is more recent so I haven’t been able to talk to them as much. But you know, they are going to the Big 12. That’s a big time conference as well. Main thing for me is go somewhere I can showcase my talents, be effective early and get to playing ball.”

    Carr has taken just two visits, an official to Washington this past September and unnoffical to Stanford, so far during his recruitment process. He would also like to see Colorado, UCSB and New Mexico in addition to Stanford after Peach Jam.

    Carr said the college coach he is closest with is Hunter of Stanford, and he added the Stanford staff has been recruiting him the longest. They were one of Carr’s first five offers while the staff was at Washington State, and the staff quickly reoffered after making the move to Stanford.

    This past Nike EYBL session in Kansas City, Carr averaged 6.0 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game. Carr plays with two five-star prospects on the Oakland Soldiers in 2025’s top player AJ Dybantsa and 2026’s top prospect Tyran Stokes.

    “With so much talent around me, I do the little things that it takes to win,” Carr said. “Get to the paint, draw the defense, kick it to my open players. They draw so much attention, so just doing the little things and being there for my teammates, picking them up, energy. Stuff like that is important.”

    Carr describes himself as a knockdown shooter who picks up 94-feet and does everything it takes the win. The point guard is ranked the No. 124 player in the 2025 class by 247Sports. He has recently fielded offers from California, New Mexico and UCSB.
