A consensus is forming in the recruitment of Vernon Carey, the elite post player in the 2019 recruiting class who recently cut Kentucky from his list and will announce a college decision Thursday.
247Sports national analyst Evan Daniels logged a Crystal Ball prediction in favor of Duke for Carey on Monday night. That came shortly after national analyst Jerry Meyer did the same, and national recruiting expert Andrew Slater has had a Duke pick recorded for Carey since last fall.
Over at Rivals.com, nation analyst Corey Evans wrote Tuesday morning that he is also predicting that Carey will end up at Duke, which, so far, has commitments from small forward Wendell Moore (No. 24 in the composite rankings) and shooting guard Boogie Ellis (No. 36).
Carey is also considering Michigan State and North Carolina.
