Undervalued Guard Wesley Cardet Primed for Big Summer, Goes In-Depth on Game and Recruitment
Ft. Lauderdale Northeast (FL) junior Wesley Cardet displayed tons of versatility and skill last season averaging better than 15 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists per game for a top-ten overall team in Florida.
“I’m a an athletic combo-guard that can handle, shoot, makes plays for my teammates and lock down on defense.”
Wesley is the rare jumbo guard that shifts gears smoothly with the ball, has outstanding vision, perimeter shotmaking ability and the athleticism to finish with authority at the rim.
In watching Cardet, there’s no question he’s undervalued nationally with other publications. He’s transparent in saying that provides a certain level of motivation.
“I definitely feel undervalued. I play with a chip on my shoulder when I step on the court. I’m ready for the summer, just want to compete against the best on the AAU circuit.”
On the recruiting trail the South-Florida native holds offers from Florida, USC, Dayton, Miami, FIU, Iowa State, USF, Alabama, Clemson, FGCU and Saint Louis.
Other programs are keeping tabs, as Wesley reports interest from Maryland, N.C. State, Baylor and Rice.
Cardet is looking forward to learning more about a B10 powerhouse, as he will conduct a virtual visit with Maryland in the near future.
The talented junior has no leaders at the moment and has no timeline for cutting his list or making a commitment. What he is certain of is that team culture will play a large role in his ultimate decision.
“I want the program to feel like home, like family. How the coaches interact with the players. Those are big for me.”
At 6’6 with a self-reported 7′ wingspan, Wesley has a prototype physical profile coupled with point-guard like playmaking, shiftiness off the bounce and a pull-up game from both distance and midrange. He has the look of a top-50 overall prospect and will immediately enter the EM database.
