Alex Caruso is the real deal. He’s a player who came out of nowhere to impress a lot of so called basketball people nationwide. That fact that this guy wasn’t on the national radar this time last year is a prime example of hard work and believing in yourself now paying off. He burst on the scene with Max Ivany’s Texas D1 Ambassadors A throw back player that plays very hard on defense. In addition to scoring he’ll give you steals,blocks and rebounds. On offense he is a beast attacking the rim and watch out on the fastbreak in transition. He’s WAY above the rim! Who said White Men Can’t Jump. You haven’t seen Caruso then.-A.W. Robinson
