Virginia is still shopping for another guard for the recruiting class of 2023, and the latest offer went out Thursday to a somewhat under-the-radar prospect from Branson, Missouri.

Cameron Carr, a 6-foot-4, late-blooming, 3-star combo guard, is expected to burst out this season for Link Academy. Carr’s father, Chris Carr, is a former NBA player who has had a strong influence on the prospect. Cameron Carr said his dad has helped him in many ways, including a personal habit of getting up an hour early every day, having a protein shake, reading his daily devotion and preparing for the day.

A protein shake is a good idea, because Carr is rail thin at 160 pounds and needs to add muscle. However, he is still growing and has a 7-foot wing span.

Carr, who is being courted heavily by Kansas State, has offers from the Wildcats, UVA, Northwestern, Boise State, Tennessee, Saint Louis, George Mason, Oral Roberts and others.

The only national recruiting service that has Carr rated is 247Sports, which has him as the No. 23 combo guard in the country and the No. 6 overall prospect in the state of Missouri.
