Recruitments are quick and easy only when everything comes together just right. And for Proviso East's Jevon Carter, that's exactly what happened and led to the senior guard committing to West Virginia.
Carter took an official visit to West Virginia over Labor Day weekend. What he saw and how he felt on that visit was enough to end his recruitment, even though the Mountaineers were a little late in recruiting the 6-1 shooting guard.
"They blew me away on my official visit," says Carter, who led last year's talented Proviso East team in scoring. "Everything was perfect. I felt like I've known their players for a long time. We have similar backgrounds and really clicked."
Coach Bob Huggins and the West Virginia staff caught a glimpse of Carter during the July evaluation and became enamored. From that point on Huggins and his staff prioritized Carter and did a terrific job in showing their commitment to him.
"It's a big-time program and a chance to play on a big-time stage," says Carter of the West Virginia school. "That's what I was looking for. I want to play at a high level."
