As a starting point guard in high school for four years, Cory Carden has built one heck of a resume.

He’s 90-21.

He owns two district titles and two PCAC crowns.

He has been to the regional finals.

And he has played for a state championship.

Now a senior, the 5-foot-8 Clearwater standout is drawing interest from several college programs, including Tampa, Berry College (Ga.), Lincoln Memorial University
 (Tenn.), Oglethorpe (Ga.) and Regis College (Mass.).

Carden’s older brother, Cameron, is a redshirt freshman guard at LMU, where he transferred to after spending a year at Stetson.

Recently, Clearwater coach Allen Carden, Cory’s father, said the younger Carden was high on both Berry and LMU.

“He really likes Berry,” Allen Carden said.

Playing with his brother, however, also is intriguing. And it’s something Allen Carden wouldn’t be against, particularly because it would make things more convenient for the family than if the brothers were attending schools hundreds of miles apart.
