Did Aquille Carr announce he’s going overseas last night?

Mar 12, 2013, 9:32 AM EDT

Last month, Seton Hall commit Aquille Carr hinted at the fact that he would be heading overseas to play instead of enrolling in college.

“I’m ready to make it like my job,” Carr said. “If you know about basketball, you know what that means. By the end of the season, everybody will find out.”

And last night on twitter, Carr seemed to all but confirm that fact:


Now, these were tweets from a 19 year old after 2:00 am, so if they are legitimate. That’s not exactly the way to make an announcement. But he twice retweeted people referring to him going overseas, and also said that he’s “NBA bound“.

There were rumors two summers ago that Carr was offered a $750,000 contract by Roma, the same team that signed Brandon Jennings out of high school.

    The funny part is that in several years, regardless of how much money he makes playing ball, he’ll be broke as a joke.

    The Baltimore City Public school system should be very proud of themselves for the job they did with Aquille Carr. This young man would probally test at a 7th grade education level. The system pushed him around so he could play ball.

    He better have a serious support system in Europe with him. He needs a close friend and an actual adult he will listen to. European fans are not the best when IT comes to respecting black athletes. He is going to hear things and be treated in ways he would never envision. The food is alot different than anything he would get around the way.He will not find a Lake Trout or a Chicken box with western fries in any European city. If he wants it to be his job,somebody has to be honest with him that he is starting from the bottom and must work his way up, that it will take time for a young very limited educated man from America.Its pro ball, he has to learn the game as a business.
