    Power 5 Conference offers are huge with the new split within the NCAA. Not in all cases, but getting an ability to get a scholarship from a Power 5 conference school has some really great benefits for the athletes that would make it hard to turn down over another non Power 5 conference school.

    Carson deserves it and I am glad he is out showing that a kid from a small county school can hit the jackpot when he goes out on the travel ball circuit holding his own against the nation's best. That is the positive about elite travel ball, college coaches can see how you compete against players who are elite division 1 prospects. High School ball in KY simply does not allow those comparisons that college coaches like to see.

    Belmont (TN) is also expressing interest in Carson. No offer made yet though.

    Not an offer, but also a major ACC school showing interest. Carson in addition to a great basketball player and young man is also a great student. Not all kids are as blessed academically or some fail to realize it before it is too late, but when you have outstanding academics/test scores an entire group of schools open up to you that many great prospects simply never gain consideration due to their grades. Carson and any of our KY prospects who have worked hard both on the court and in the classroom deserve all the attention they are garnering from schools.
