In the midst of his third season at St. John's, Steve Lavin is hitting the recruiting trail.
Steve Lavin was at Wadleigh High School in Harlem on Saturday to watch Bishop Loughlin shooting guard Khadeen Carrington, according to MSG Varsity's Elio Velez.
Carrington, a junior who grew up in the Flatbush area of Brooklyn, is being courted by a number of schools including St. John's. According to this feature about the young guard, Carrington's list consisted of St. John's, Providence, DePaul, West Virginia, SMU, Iowa, and Iowa State as of this past summer.
The quick guard scored 16 points in Bishop Loughlin's big 76-56 win over Mount Vernon at Saturday's annual Wadleigh-Rucker Christmas Classic.
He fits the typical Lavin mold - a 6'3" guard that thrives when he pushes the ball up the floor, yet needs improvement with his perimeter jump shot. It is believed Carrington would be recruited as a potential point guard.
The Bishop Loughlin guard has hinted that staying home in New York City would be an ideal scenario. With St. John's only a hop, skip, and jump from Carrington's friends and family, the Red Storm could be a good fit.
Carrington has also spent time playing for the New York Lightning, a highly-regarded AAU club in the area. He has emerged as one of the city's top targets for 2014, alongside Lincoln guard Isaiah Whitehead.
