Andrew Carr Talks Upcoming Visits to Davidson & Wichita State

Published

Former Delaware forward Andrew Carr entered his name in the transfer portal and will be taking visits to Davidson and Wichita State over the coming weeks. He is one example of how a strong March can help showcase your talents on a larger stage.

“We knew that we had the talent all year to put it together,” Carr told The Portal Report, “We really dug in and did all the tough stuff, the defensive stuff we knew we were capable of.”

The Blue Hens had lost its final three games of the regular season, knocking them out of a top-four seed in the CAA Tournament.  Their journey to their first NCAA Tournament since 2014 was not easy, to say the least, but they made it look like a piece of cake. In three days, they had beaten their rival Drexel and the top two seeds, UNCW and Towson. Carr was a key contributor, scoring 36 points and reeling in 30 rebounds, earning all-tournament nods.

He’s always been a great player though, so you can’t say three games led him to taking the step up. He averaged 10 points and 5.1 rebounds per game, ranking in the top 80 of the country in both effective field goal and true shooting percentage. Those skills showed in the season opener against Davidson. Now the Wildcats want him to join their squad. He will be taking a visit to North Carolina soon.

“I definitely did not think that I was going to be in the transfer portal during the first game of the season,” said Carr, “I was recruited by Davidson coming out of high school as well. So I already had a bit of a relationship with Coach Reigel and I was on their radar. So right when I put my name in the portal, they were one of the first teams to reach out. Very enticing just because of the way they play and the high character guys and track record they have.”

Carr will also be visiting Wichita State, a program from the American Athletic Conference. The Shockers went 15-13 last season.

“Wichita State was one of the schools that I was not expecting to hear from. It kinda came a little bit out of nowhere and I was excited to get to know Coach Brown and everything. I think they have a lot of opportunity for me there, especially playing in the American. I think it would be a great league to be able to play for them and take my game to the next level with their playstyle, they play pretty fast and free-flowing. They have a history of bigs that are able to pick and pop, put it on the floor, they have real success with that. I think it could be another place that I see myself fitting in and becoming a great player,” Carr said.

He also is in talks with Virginia Tech and VCU on setting up a visit, keeping his recruitment open to those programs.

“That’s the next step with both of those (setting up a visit). I had good conversations with the coaches from both of those schools and setting up zooms. That’s kinda how the process has been going, you get to put a face to the voice and the name and from there kinda you kinda schedule a visit. That’s kinda the plan right now, get to know them a little bit and hopefully by next week figure out a way to get a visit going,” Carr said.

Andrew Carr is finishing his sophomore year of college.
