According to Maxpreps, it was his second season in which he averaged over 20 points per game.
What Was Said by Phenom Hoops:
“Carr touches the paint at will. His change of pace is off the charts and his ability to keep defenders on his hip while he makes a play is second to none. Carr makes excellent reads, always finding the open man no matter where the help defense is coming from. Carr plays with a calm demeanor and has take over ability at the right time.” – Jamie Shaw in 2019
“The tough, two-way floor general has a game that belongs at the Division I level, as he simply knows how to make everyone better. However, Carr is also an extremely gifted and efficient scorer. He’s shown that over the past few weeks, never dipping below twenty points in any single contest and notching thirty/forty-plus on multiple different occasions.” – Jeff Bendel in 2019
