I have heard that the Griz basketball coaching staff is looking at Riley Carel from Enumclaw high school in Washington. Carel a 6-2 180 pound senior point guard for Enumclaw high school, which is currently ranked #1 in the Washington 3A prep ranks. Enumclaw runs a very balanced offensive attack with 4 players who have double digit point averages.
Carel is averaging 14 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assist, 3 steals a game while shooting 50% from the field, and 40% from beyond the three point arc. I am told he has deep three point range but is also strong enough to post up weaker guards. He is more of a hustle point guard than a speed kid. Has really built a reputation this year on the basketball court and the football field where he plays quarterback, as a player who has the big game or hits the big play when his team needs it.
As a junior he was named Washington’s SPSL 3A MVP, and has a chance to win that honor again this year.
As far as I can tell I believe Montana is the only D-1 school who is looking at Carel right now, but he is getting a lot of attention from D-2, NAIA and JC schools. I do not believe Montana has offered him, but with the state tournaments coming up his recruitment could take off a little once a few more schools see him.
