A target of Duke, UNC and Miami, 5-star Vernon Carey Jr. to trim list of schools to 3

One of the top targets in the 2019 recruiting class has a decision on the horizon. 5-star center Vernon Carey Jr. announced on Twitter that he plans to cut his list of schools to three. Currently, Carey is a target of Duke, North Carolina, Miami, Michigan State and Kentucky.

During a two-week stretch — from mid-October to the first weekend of November — Carey took official visits to Duke, UNC and Miami. Earlier this year in February, Carey took an official visit to Michigan State. Under new NCAA guidelines, he took another official visit to East Lansing about two weeks ago, too.

Duke is believed to be the favorite, slightly, to land Carey; assistant coach Jon Scheyer has led that recruitment for the Blue Devils. The 6-foot-10 center is expected to announce his commitment later this month.

247 Sports ranks Carey as the No. 2 overall prospect in the 2019 class.
