Carey picks up interest

Ever since we wrote our class of 2012 introduction on Tariq Carey, it seems that the 6-1 guard from Newark Eastside (N.J.) is picking up new schools every week. The most recent one is a fast-paced program from the Big 12.

“I just picked up Missouri!” Carey said in a text message. “I think I fit in the type of play; I love being in the open court.”

While the Tigers did not extend an offer, Carey was confident they would once they watched him this season.

 “They might just have to see me play more in order to make that decision,” he said. “I think by this upcoming summer, the offers should start coming in or by the high school [season]. I have to prove myself in high school and in AAU, then they should most likely come.”

Additionally, with Carey becoming more of a national name, some people might expect him to leave his AAU team, Team New Jersey Elite, and join a squad that is more widely known across the country.

Carey doesn’t plan on it, though.

 “That’s the team I first got exposure with,” he said. “I won’t feel comfortable playing anywhere else.

“I love my coaches Gaylen and Jerry. Me and my teammates [have] been together since 8th grade and we mesh well so this year we will do good again. I have a good feeling!”
