CSI forward visits USU

College of Southern Idaho forward Carrick Felix was a visitor to the Spectrum in Logan Saturday night to take in an Aggie basketball game and check out the school.

Felix, a 6-foot-6, 195-pound freshman with three years of eligibility remaining after the season, said his stop in Logan was an unofficial visit and he’s still undecided on which college he’ll attend after this season. He suffered a broken wrist last year and didn’t play — redshirting instead.

The Phoenix, Arizona native averaged 19.7 points, 13.2 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game as a senior at Millenium High School.

This year, he’s averaging 15.0 points and 5.0 rebounds for the Golden Eagles. He’s shooting 48.8 percent from the floor and leads the team with 28 blocked shots in 21 games played.

After the game, Felix was greeted by the USU basketball team in the hallway outside the locker room.

Securing Felix’s services for the next three years would give the Aggies some incredible depth at the 3 spot with Tyler Newbold, Pooh Williams and Brady Jardine each capable of playing the position.

But getting the athletic CSI player will be tough. He’s been offered an official recruiting visit to Duke coming up soon and has scholarship offers from a few other schools including Idaho.
