Kevin Willard has opted to dismiss sophomore reserve forward Myles Carter (St. Rita, Ill.) from the program for a failure to meet academic standards.
“Being a student-athlete here at Seton Hall is a privilege that comes with responsibilities, and unfortunately Myles was unable to meet those standards,” Willard said in a release. “We wish Myles well and hope for all the best for him.”
Carter had previously missed the December 1st game against Columbia because he had to “reintroduce himself to the classroom”, but saw time against both South Carolina and Delaware since.
A sophomore, Carter was the second forward off of Kevin Willard’s bench behind Mike Nzei; expect center Rashed Anthony to eat up any minutes Carter was projected to see.
Carter was averaging 6.6 minutes per game and had played too little over the past season and a half for a conclusion to be drawn on his skill set.
Seton Hall now has two open scholarships for the 2017 class after Veer Singh chose to transfer last week; the staff hosted 6-foot-9, 280-pound 2017 post forward Darnell Brodie (Putnam Science Academy, Conn.) on an official visit yesterday and is exploring junior college prospects.
A native of Newark who previously attended the same high school as Ish Sanogo, Brodie is thought to have been planning to graduate in the spring and then reclassify to 2018, but I’m told the staff is looking at him as a 2017 option.
