Four-star senior Wesley Cardet Jr. garnering new interest

October 3, 2020

One of the breakout players of 2020 has to be Wesley Cardet Jr. out of West Oaks (FL.). He had multiple high-scoring games this summer and has put high-major programs on notice.

He already holds offers from Alabama, DePaul, FAMU, Georgia, Howard, Illinois, Iona, Iowa State, Kansas State, Maryland, Rutgers, Samford, and St. John’s.

In addition, he says he’s garnered some new interests. 

“The same schools are still recruiting me. Schools like Auburn and Tulsa have not offered me but they call/text a lot.” Plus, he landed recent scholarship offers from Georgia’s Tom Crean and Illinois’ Brad Underwood. 

Underwood, the head coach of the Illini, will complete a zoom call soon with Cardet Jr. Along with that, Cardet Jr. also said that Iowa State’s Steve Prohm will conduct a virtual meeting soon.

As we mentioned earlier Auburn is the newest program to reach out to Cardet Jr. The Tigers have Tyrell Jones on their roster, who also attended West Oaks Academy just like Cardet Jr. So, Bruce Pearl does have a little familiarity with him and I believe his staff will continue to evaluate him and something might come of this interest over the next few weeks.

He’s taking the process extremely slow, he said. He told that he won’t even cut his list to ten programs until November, then once again in January, and to cap things off, he said that as of right now he will announce his college choice in Late-April.

“To many players and coaches are leaving,” he said on why he will decide late. This is better for both him and the programs who want to see more gameplay from him. I fully expect more programs to get involved with him as the weeks go by.
