    Red, white and blue for D.J. Carton
    Ohio State point guard commit D.J. Carton headed west from Bettendorf, Iowa, to Colorado Spring, Colorado, this weekend to take part in the USA Basketball Men’s Junior National Team minicamp held at the United States Olympic Training Center. The event, featuring 87 players, included 24 players from Carton’s 2019 class.

    Though Carton ranks as a five-star prospect, he won’t be the highest-rated player at the minicamp. The top seven prospects in the 2019 class, including Cole Anthony, the top guard in the country, will attend the event.

    “Even if I’m not trying out for a team, I’m still going to try to prove myself — prove why I’m one of the best guards in the country," Carton told the Des Moines Register. “I feel like I’m one of the best players in the country, one of the best guards. So I feel like going into this camp, competing against these guys, I have the ability to prove that.”

    It won’t be the first time Carton, the No. 24 prospect and second-ranked point guard in the country, dons the Team USA jersey. He tried out for the U18 National Team this summer, but did not make it through the final cut.

    Spending time around the top prospects this weekend allowed Carton become a recruiter for the Buckeyes, a role he embraced.

    “I’ll be all over them,” Carton told the Des Moines Register. “I’m always looking to improve this team.”
