No. 1 PA Recruit Tony Carr Commits To Penn State Basketball

Pat Chambers’ Class of 2016 gained another member on Monday, as four-star recruit Tony Carr committed to play for Penn State Hoops. The point guard from Roman Catholic in Philadelphia is ranked by 247 Sports as the top player in Pennsylvania in his class.

The point guard had offers from 17 schools, including four other Big Ten schools. The two most intriguing offers were Maryland (whom 247 predicted had the second-best chance of landing Carr — Penn State was No. 1) and Temple, the school closest to where he plays high school basketball.

Carr will join current teammate Nazeer Bostick in Happy Valley, as the latter committed in late April. Bostick is a three-star shooting guard, and the duo’s already established chemistry should translate well to the Bryce Jordan Center. Carr and Bostick are expected to recruit their good friend Lamar Stevens, a shooting forward from Haverford School and the No. 2 recruit in Pennsylvania. The three were rumored to be a “package deal,” so with Carr’s commitment, it’s only a matter of time to see if Stevens will follow suit.

Pat Chambers is continuing to show off his recruiting prowess, and now time will tell if it will show on the scoreboard and in the records. Welcome aboard, Tony.
