Tim Floyd and the UTEP Miners picked up another guard commitment Friday morning with Shaquile Carr giving UTEP a verbal commit.
Carr is a 6'1 point guard from Canyon Springs High School in Las Vegas, he was drawing interest from Arizona, UCLA(take that Alford), USC(same to you Enfield), and had an offer from UNLV.
A National Scout had this to say about Carr:
"Shaquile Carr is a smooth guard with the ball-handling ability and quickness to get to the basket consistently"
Carr currently has led Canyon Springs to a 14-4 overall record this season, he is a consistent scorer, and has the ability to dominate off the dribble with his quick first step.
This now adds five guards to the 2014 class for the Miners. Floyd was out recruiting Wednesday, and Bob Cantu is still out on the road.
The Miners also have an eye on JUCO guard Novian Cherry. Cherry has offers from Washington State, and Western Kentucky, and will visit UTEP in March but no offer from Floyd and Co. has been made as of today.
