The nephew of the rap mogul, Nahziah Carter, was never a 5-star recruit and didn’t receive offers from programs such as Duke or Kentucky, but he’s shaming blue-blood recruits with his athleticism at the rim.
The final weekend of the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL) in Los Angeles featured the top AAU teams in the nation. On Sunday, Carter caught No. 1 overall recruit Marvin Bagley on a fast break, and it resulted in a posterizing dunk.

Bagley holds offers from Duke, Kentucky, Arizona, UCLA and Kansas. He wasn’t the only 5-star prospect who was dunked on by Carter.

Carter de-committed from Dayton after Archie Miller accepted the Indiana coaching job. The Hoosiers offered him and he could end up posterizing top Big Ten talent in Assembly Hall.
Carter also holds offers from Penn State, Boston College and Georgetown.
