The 2017-18 season for Penn State men’s basketball ended with a bang.
The Nittany Lions won the NIT championship on Thursday against Utah, 82-66. With Penn State’s season being over, one question remains.
What’s next for Tony Carr?
Carr, a 6-foot-5 sophomore guard, is an NBA-level talent. In the win over Utah, he scored 15 points while dishing out 14 assists and grabbing 9 rebounds.
Carr received chants from Penn State fans after the team’s victory as they pleaded for “one more year!”
He said he heard the crowd chanting and revealed his thoughts on the decision process ahead of him.
“I definitely didn’t make the decision [yet],” he said. “I’ll probably make it within the next week or two.”
The NBA combine will take place in May and Carr can choose to participate in the combine but not sign with an agent. If he does that, he would have 10 days after the combine ends to make the decision to return to Penn State for his junior season. If he signs with an agent, Carr won’t be allowed to return to the Nittany Lions.
This season, Carr averaged 19.7 points, 4.8 assists and 4.8 rebounds per game.
As a recruit coming out of high school, he was a 4-star prospect and was ranked by 247Sports as the No. 51 overall player in the Class of 2016. He was the No. 1 player in Pennsylvania.
