Virginia Tech interested in Montrose Christian’s Michael Carrera and Kevin Larsen

Virginia Tech has offered scholarships to Montrose Christian forward Michael Carrera and center Kevin Larsen, Mustangs Coach Stu Vetter said Thursday. Both players are rising seniors.

Carrera, a 6-foot-6 forward from Venezuela, emerged as a standout this past season, developing a scoring touch around the basket while gaining notice for his energy level and work ethic.

He also has scholarship offers from Richmond and Gonzaga, Vetter said.

Larsen, a 6-9 center from Denmark, played sparingly most of the season but was splendid as Montrose won the National High School Invitational at season’s end. Gonzaga also has offered Larsen, Vetter said.

Montrose’s top returning player, forward Justin Anderson, has committed to Virginia after originally committing to Maryland prior to Gary Williams’ retirement.

Meantime, Vetter said that he is fielding more inquiries than ever from players who are interested in transferring to the Rockville private school. He said he has yet to contact all of the prospects and is unsure who will be on the Mustants’ roster next season.

“There is a lot of interest because of the [Hoops Academy] TV show and the NHSI,” Vetter said. “We’re getting calls like we’ve never gotten.”
