-          Love for the Little Guy
Listed at generous 5-foot-10, 175 pounds, Carson is below the average size for D-1 point guards. This stature mixed with his explosive skills makes him an entertaining prospect. Quick crossovers, massive hops and breakaway speed made Carson a YouTube all-star while at Mesa High in Arizona. Although Carson has yet to record a dunk this season, he has the ability to throwdown with authority.

-          Homegrown Hops
Arizona State has missed out on nearly every big time Arizona recruit. If these players don’t leave the state, they join the Arizona Wildcats, enter Richard Jefferson, Mike Bibby and Sean Elliot. Carson first committed to Oregon State but eventually landed with the Sun Devils after coach Herb Sendek promised him a fast paced offense. A fast paced tempo help Carson drop 58 points in the High School state semifinals.
