We’ve had the pleasure of seeing KJ this spring on the 7v7 circuit. Tremendous upside and displays good enough arms strength to make most throws. However, we will probably be forced to wait another year until we see KJ McCarter in live varsity action. He is definitely a player to watch in the 2016 class for the state of Indiana.
