The region’s top unsigned senior prospect will be back in action this weekend, but Michael Carrera seems in no hurry to make his college choice.

The 6-foot-6 Venezuelan was All-Met as a junior last season at Montrose Christian and followed that up with a strong senior year, averaging 13.2 points and 12.2 rebounds.

He is on the radar of many college programs and this week said that George Mason, George Washington, Gonzaga, Pittsburgh, Richmond and Temple are among the schools he is considering. Carrera hopes to take visits to several of those schools.

Montrose Christian (20-2), which hasn’t played since Feb. 23, faces Ravenscroft (N.C.) in the quarterfinals of the National High School Invitational Thursday at 4 p.m. at Georgetown Prep. The game will be televised on ESPNU.

Opposing coaches and college recruiters love Carrera’s work ethic and hustle. He also has worked hard to develop his offensive game.

“I’m going to decide after the tournament, I’m just waiting for a few more scholarships,” Carrera said earlier this week. “I just want one place I can be comfortable, where my family can be comfortable when they get here. We’ll see what happens.”
