Each and every time Phenom Hoop Report gets to report or sees a commitment from a player we have seen over the years, it is always a fantastic day. It is great to see players achieve their goal to play at the next level and it is such a great accomplishment for that player.
Here is the latest commitment.
Player: Carter Whitt
Committed to: Wake Forest
What does Wake Forest Get:
First off, what a snag for first year head coach Steve Forbes and for the Wake Forest program. Not only do the Demon Deacons get a Top-100 type talent to build around for the future, but also a local name in North Carolina. As far as a player, Whitt will be a floor general that has a great blend of scoring ability but also terrific vision and instincts on how to find his teammates. He plays with tremendous pace, gets to his spots, and keeps defenders off balance. Being a star in North Carolina, Whitt will certainly bring more eyes and fans to Winston-Salem with his game.
Stats Last Season:
Whitt was regarded as one of the top prospects in the State of North Carolina with his play at Leesville Road, where he posted numbers of 22.3 points, 9.0 rebounds, and 8.3 assists per game
What Was Said by Phenom Hoops:
“While his scoring and defensive abilities have both improved drastically over the years, his IQ, vision, and unbelievable playmaking skills is what will always separate him from similar prospects. He’s an elite passer that can see the entire floor at all times. Whitt makes the correct, smartest possible read every single time he makes a decision with the ball in his hands. He makes everyone around him better simply with his consistent, unwavering approach to the game. The aforementioned development of his scoring prowess allows him to manage the game and break down opposing defenses, but then take advantage of any available scoring opportunities.”
“In terms of true floor generals, there might not be anyone in the country better than Whitt, who has quickly become one of the most coveted prospects in North Carolina—regardless of class. His feel for the game is simply tremendous and his ability to make the correct read with precision and consistency is unparalleled. Whitt possesses craftiness with the ball in his hands and displays high-level vision with frequency. That being said, he’s also a proven scorer with a polished three-level arsenal and the ability to create quality separation with relative ease. Whitt’s approach and decision-making process never seem to waver, which has allowed him to become a leader by example.”
