Seton Hall basketball received news Tuesday morning that prized 2013 recruit Aquille Carr will not enroll at the school next fall, and will instead play overseas, according to the Star-Ledger.
Carr, a 5'7 guard from Baltimore who originally committed to Seton Hall in January 2012, tweeted the following on Tuesday:
The money wont always be there gotta get it when u can i turned it down last time not this time
The news is disappointing for Seton Hall, which was relying on Carr to help revitalize a program that hasn't made the NCAA Tournament since 2006. While Carr never signed a Letter of Intent with the school, he told NJ.com just seven weeks ago that he planned on Seton Hall.
However, despite that announcement, Carr's decision to bypass college basketball isn't a surprising one.
Since he committed to Seton Hall, Carr has dealt with personal and legal issues, issues which have seen him spend time at high schools in Maryland, New Jersey and Florida and get arrested last summer on a domestic battery charge.
The news is even more troubling for Seton Hall since it comes just a few days after a second recruit, Jerron Wilbut, was arrested in his native Illinois. Along with Carr, Wilbut was the only member of Seton Hall's 2013 recruiting class.
