Winning is a skill set that translates. It is an attitude, a belief that it's going to happen. 6'5' Trey Carver has been the best player on one of North Carolina's best teams over the last two years.

Tucked away in the furthest most northeastern part of North Carolina, Northeastern High School (and its surrounding area) is a usual hotbed for athletes. However, many times these athletes can go unnoticed due to the cities location.

Northeastern High School has an enrollment that hoovers around 850 and carries alumni that have been in the NBA, NFL, and several D1 athletic programs. This year's team is no different, over the last two seasons they are 39-8. Both teams were led by Carver.

After watching him in our Phenom Hoops Summer Jam, Analyst Kyle Ellis wrote,''Carver could be one of the most intriguing players in North Carolina's Class of 2016. He isn't exactly the flashiest player and doesn't necessarily have that 'wow' factor that blows you off your feet, but the 6'5' brute is aggressive, smart, and extremely talented. After an impressive junior season this year at Northeastern High School where he racked in just under 19PPG, Carver's recruitment is picking up.'

Playing for a semester at Genesis Academy in Lyncburg, Va Carver picked up offers from the likes of East Tennessee St, Southern Miss, and Hofstra. However, since his move back home the staffs at those schools have either been fired or backed off as Carver moved back to his natural 2016 class.

Carver carries great bloodlines as his brother Aaron is currently on basketball scholarship at Old Dominion. His father, AC, is in Old Dominion's Athletic Hall of Fame, as he is 5th on the school's all-time scoring list.

Carver is unique, he has a burly 225 pound frame that he uses on the block. He has great hands and footwork down there as well. Carver rebounds the ball very well and talks non-stop on defense. He also carries deep range and is great off the catch from 15' to 23'. The incredibly strong Carver is a natural leader and has a body that will play right away at the next level.

Right now, Hampton, Winthrop, and Tulane are talking to him the most. And we should see at least one offer come from this group in the next week or two. If Northeastern is able to go far in the playoffs (as expected) more coaches could see him. If a coach sees him, there is no telling what may happen. Division 1 coaches, be on the lookout he can really play.
