09. Andrew Carr (Kentucky)

2023-24 Season at Wake Forest: 13.5 PPG | 6.8 RPG | 1.5 BPG | 52.6 FG% | 37.1 3PT%

Andrew Carr’s time at Wake Forest can only be described as solid. And solid is what new Kentucky coach Mark Pope needs to get his team up and running. In his senior season, Carr made improvements on both ends of the court. He improved his scoring average by nearly three points per game, while also improving his overall shooting and three-point percentages. His best overall game came against Georgia in the NIT, where Carr scored a season-high 31 points and pulled in 11 rebounds, making nearly 58 percent of his shots. 

Carr scored all over the court last season. While mostly a post scorer, Carr has no problem stretching out the defense and letting shots fly from behind the arc. He attempted nearly three per game, making 37.1 percent from deep. Carr didn’t need to be the go-to-player to impact the game offensively, for Wake Forest he was the fourth leading scorer on the team, making the most of his offensive touches. 

Last season Carr was one of the better defenders in the ACC, ranking near the top of the conference in both rebounds and blocks per game. 

Carr is an all-around solid player, capable of impacting the game on either end of the floor, which will fit in perfectly for a Mark Pope coached team. Kentucky will have a transfer-heavy roster this season, and Pope was able to pick up one of the most reliable players in the country.
