So, where is Jahii Carson? Sun Devil fans are beginning to hear rumors of all kinds when it comes to the highly recruited / highly anticipated “point guard of the future.”
This weekend’s scrimmage and the recent team photo shoot were held without Carson. We all know the kid has some amazing talent and can dang near jump out of the gym. He is as quick as a cat and has been pretty outspoken about his desire to be the home-town guy for the Devils. Waiting for an academic clearance appears to be the sticking point. While Carson did transfer high schools once in his career, that shouldn’t be a big deal. Some have said there could be an issue with a class he took online this summer at another school while playing for Team USA. With some luck, they can get the necessary information transferred, soon. Hopefully, the online class wasn’t taken at the same time he was on the court…
I saw Jahii play a couple of games for Mesa High last year and was impressed with his amazing natural abilities. I hope he has everything needed to get into class and get on the court for the Sun Devils this year. To me, his high school team didn’t appear to be the most disciplined team around. Having f bombs thrown at high school kids during time outs didn’t exactly seem to be what they needed. Maybe Sendek can mold this talented baller into something special.
Most Sun Devil fans haven’t seen much of Carson. Check out this video below. Not only can he jump like crazy, but he is lightning quick and has a good feel for the game.

These can be light rail related, but we also want pics or videos of your favorite spot, restaurant, sports team, community, event etc.
