Pro Insight: What has your basketball journey been like?
Coen Carr: I have been playing basketball ever since I could remember. I hadn’t really been recruited until this past summer, so I have just been under the radar working my hardest, training hard, and doing whatever I can to get to this point that I am at right now. I feel like I have done a good job of that.
PI: What is the latest with your recruitment?
CC: I have been hearing from Cincinnati, Arizona State, Georgia, Vanderbilt, Indiana, Tennessee State, and Clemson. Most of them have offered me, so it has been a pretty good process and I am excited to see how it ends.
PI: Who has been reaching out the most? Have there been any standouts during the recruitment process?
CC: Arizona State, Indiana, Georgia, Vanderbilt, and Cincinnati are standouts, as they have definitely been in contact the most.
PI: What are some things you are looking for in a college basketball program?
CC: I want a team that plays fast, and a school that makes me better on and off the court. I want a school that makes me a better man off the court, and has high quality academics.
PI: Describe yourself as a player. What are some strengths of your game?
CC: I feel like I am a positionless player that plays one-through-four, because I can guard players bigger than me and players faster than me. I am an all-around player that can play wherever coach wants me at. I bring leadership, energy, and I feel like I can be a walking highlight reel. I can change the game at any moment, so I am a game-changer.
PI: What are some improvement areas you are working on?
CC: Shooting and ball handling mostly, and then just getting my body stronger. Those would be the areas I want to improve on the most.
PI: What are some goals of yours as a player?
CC: I want to go to a great college and try to make the NBA. That’s what I have been focusing on the most recently, and I feel I am getting closer to that point and figuring out my future.
PI: What are some hobbies of yours? What do you like to do off the court?
CC: I really like to watch movies. I watch a lot of movies. Other than that, I just like to chill out and hang with my friends.
PI: What are some ways you stay motivated?
CC: I think my parents really motivate me. I don’t want them to have to wake up and worry about going to work.
PI: You have one hashtag to describe yourself. What is it and why?
CC: #Exciting. I feel like I am the most exciting player every time I step on the court.
