Tariq Carey, a 6-3 point guard from St. Anthony’s (N.J.) has committed to play at Quinnipiac next season.
Carey averaged 6.6 points, 2.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists for the undefeated Friars (32-0), and chose Quinnipiac over Missouri State, Boston University, New Hampshire and Siena.
“He’s a pretty versatile guard, he can play both guard positions,” Hall of Fame St. Anthony coach Bob Hurley told SNY.tv
. “He’s strong. He became a much better defensive player this year, so I think he’ll be ready to play defense at the college level.
“And he’s an excellent offensive player when you give him some freedom. He’s a really, really good passer and I think other than Kyle [Anderson] last year he was our second-best guy getting the ball into the post. At Quinnipiac, they were the No. 2 rebounding team in the country so they got somebody who can get the ball inside and they’ve got guys who can do stuff with it.”
