Carson weighing NBA options
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona State point guard Jahii Carson has submitted paperwork for evaluation from NBA officials, but won’t make a decision on whether he’s going to leave the Sun Devils for a couple of weeks.
A redshirt freshman and one of the biggest in-state recruits in Arizona State history, Carson became one of the nation’s best point guards in his first season with the Sun Devils.
The speedy, 5-foot-10 guard, Carson led Arizona State with 18.5 points and 5.1 assists per game on his way to being selected the Pac-12′s co-freshman of the year with UCLA’s Shabazz Muhammad. Carson also set a freshman record with 34 points in a win over Stanford during the Pac-12 tournament.
Under NCAA rules, Carson has until April 16 to withdraw his draft application.
