Talented young big man Vernon Carey, currently seen as the top rated player in the class of 2019, has cut his list to five. In no particular order: Duke, Miami, UNC, Kentucky and Michigan State.

Notably missing is Kansas. Romeo Langford cut Kansas from his list because of the Adidas scandal. Could Carey have done so for the same reason?

Miami and Michigan State might bed the outliers here but his father played football at Miami and Tom Izzo has done well with players like Carey.
