Nahziah Carter, Jay Z’s nephew, commits to Washington

Nahziah Carter, a Class of 2017 wing and the nephew of rap superstar Jay Z, committed to Washington late Friday night.

The 6-foot-5 Carter is considered a three-star prospect, according to Rivals, as he made a late pledge to the Huskies after playing this spring with the City Rocks in the Nike EYBL. Carter was originally committed to Dayton but he decided to re-open his recruitment this spring once head coach Archie Miller left to take the Indiana job.

The Huskies are getting an athletic, late-blooming wing who had a solid spring with the City Rocks as Carter was a consistent double-figure scorer in the EYBL.

Carter joins four-star guard Jaylen Nowell in Washington’s Class of 2017 recruiting efforts. With a lot of roster turnover with new head coach Mike Hopkins, Carter could get a chance at some solid minutes right away.
