High school basketball in New York City might be suspended, but players are still committing and getting scholarships to play at the college level. The latest signing was Jaquan Carlos, a top point guard from East New York’s Thomas Jefferson HS.

Jaquan Carlos recently committed to Hofstra. According to News12 Carlos had offers from Oklahoma State, Pittsburgh and Fordham.

Carlos stated that he chose Hofstra because it’s close to home, particularly during this pandemic. “If I can make it home for Sunday dinner they will always be there. If I need anything they’re not too far.”
