New Carr smell: Towson celebrates
Towson coach Pat Kennedy announced the signing of junior college point guard Vernon Carr on Thursday, taking particular pride in having gotten him over an offer from USF.
"Any time we can outrecruit a Big East school, that's substantial," Kennedy told the Baltimore Examiner for a story that ran Friday.
Expect more news from USF basketball today, but in the meantime, you can check out Towson's official release on Carr. They picked up the same "one of the toughest guys in Detroit" quotes we linked to a few days back from UTEP's original signing announcement, but they don't mention that the high praise is more than three years old.
