What Insiders Say

Arizona State coach Herb Sendek

“Jahii made an incredible impact on our program over the past two seasons and was a huge part of the success we achieved as a team.”

 

What Outsiders Say

Arizona coach Sean Miller

“[Carson is] an electric player, a fun guy to watch. He gets the ball out in transition. He gets his teammates easy shots, and then you look at how easy it is for him to get to the foul line and score.”
