Reco McCarter chooses VCU

542969Shaka Smart and staff have landed another 2010 stud in 6’7 small forward Reco McCarter.  McCarter has been described as a smooth and athletic lefty, with the ability to run the floor and lock down on defense.  Take a look for yourself…

McCarter comes to VCU via Goldsboro, NC and chose VCU over the likes of Wake Forest, Clemson, Virginia Tech, Charlotte, and Boston College. He becomes the second 2010 recruit alongside 6’2 guard Rob Brandenburg.

ESPN grade: 91 3 star recruit

Matt has been reporting on VCU sports for Ram Nation since 2007 with a focus on news, photos, and feature stories.

Love this pickup! He's definitely one of the top recruits in the conference this year. The guy has size at 6'7, but handles and shoots like a guard. He'll be a beast of a mismatch playing the 3! Great get for Shaka and the coaching staff! Go Rams!

I really think this guys is going to be sensational.

6'7 with handles and can step back and drain it....and he's only a junior in high school.

Guys like these are only going to continue making VCU better and better.
