Since ushering in a class of 2013 that included McDonald’s All-American selection and ProspectsNation.com ELITE 25 member, Rebekah Dahlman of Braham, Minn., Vanderbilt has secured four ELITE 25 rated prospects. The latest to pledge to play for coach Melanie Balcomb is class of 2016 wing Chassity Carter of Dickson, Tenn. Here is a look at what the 5-star prospect will bring to the Commodores:
Chassity Carter – Dickson County HS (Dickson, Tenn.,) — 2016
Position: Small Forward
Club Team: Team Tennessee
ProspectsNation.com Grade: 5 star
Committed College: Vanderbilt
3/16/14 – CoachHemi.com Showcase (Murfreesboro, Tenn.) – Stephen Peck
Carter is a versatile threat on the offensive end. She loves to pass the ball, but mixes in her global warming research paper sources athleticism to be able to create her own shot. We project her as a player who can defend 1-4 on the court.
11/9/13 – Riverdale Scrimmage (Murfreesboro, Tenn.) – Brandon Clay
After making the USA Basketball 16-and-under team in May, Carter played with an increased level of confidence throughout the summer including her play at the Real Deal in the ‘Ville during July. The 5-foot-11 wing is currently ranked in the ProspectsNation.com ELITE25 for the class of 2016. The sky is the limit for Carter. In fact her style of play on the offensive end reminds us of a former ELITE 25 caliber prep with the same last name in Tennessee redshirt freshman Andraya Carter. If Chassity will dedicate herself to becoming a more assertive scorer like Andraya has, we expect her to stay amongst the nation’s elite.
5/26/13 – essay service management U16 National Team Trials (Colorado Springs, Colo.) – Keil Moore
Carter is a little raw right now, but if she can continue to improve her skill set and understanding of how to play the game she could be one of the elite prospects in the 2016 class. Carter has elite size for the off guard position and a capable college ready type frame as a rising sophomore in high school. She is a hit or miss perimeter shooter right now and an elite level athlete.
5/25/13 – USA Basketball U16 Trials (Colorado Springs, Colo.) – Brandon Clay
Carter is not currently as skilled as the elite class of 2015 kids Asia Durr, Te’a Cooper and Katie Lou Samuelson but was definitely in the next group. She can be a secondary ball handler and she likes to create for teammates. We would love to see essay service canada her work on the range on her outside jump shot or develop a go-to mid range stop and pop for these settings of the best in the country. She’s a top tier athlete on the wing in this class.
4/14/13 – PSB Tip-Off Classic (Suwanee, Ga.) – Jonathan Hemingway
An emerging wing forward, Carter showed a scoring mentality in this eval. Like the November eval, she is an ultra athlete who is becoming a good handler. She can hit the spot 3, the jumper off the dribble and can score vs. contact in the lane.
11/10/12 – Riverdale Jamboree (Murfreesboro, Tenn.) – Jonathan Hemingway
Carter has real length on the wing and bounce in her legs. She is explosive in the open floor. While she can improve her left hand in the offensive half court, we view her as the definition of essay on my dream destination disneyland an athlete. In that regard, Carter has 5-star qualities but hasn’t turned the corner just yet. Her game reminds me of a younger N’Dea Bryant (NC-12/North Carolina freshman).
7-11-12 @ AAU Nationals (Orlando, Fla.) – Keil Moore
Right now, Carter is a combo forward who elevates on her jumper. She is a real nice athlete and think that she has a lot of potential in that area for sure. Carter showed average ball skill in this eval and will have to improve in that area.
