Big fan of this kid long term. 6-8 as a freshman. Can handle the ball, looks comfortable out on the perimeter.

Looks like a perfect Wisconsin big man - which is why we should be all over him.

Here's a quote from Carlson from August:

Looking to keep Carlson at home, Minnesota has taken an early shining to Carlson, who visited the Gophers last season. “Since I’m an in-state kid, they really want me to go there,” Carlson told NY2LA Sports. They’ve got good stuff going on there. They had a really good season last year. It was a really fun atmosphere. They have a good coaching staff. The fans are really good. It’s an exciting time for them.”

I like that what I presume his mom is handling the dissemination of information regarding his recruitment. (This is not sarcasm) Shows me they have his best interest in mind and are hoping to shield him from some of the comments and criticisms that go with being a major college recruit.

Did his Dad play at ISU ? Depending on how he shows this winter it looks like a advance scout for UVA and Northwestern are coming for a look.

They call him a G. Does he project there or as a SF?

per STrib:

"I'm excited about the Minnesota offer," Carlson said Monday night. "They have a lot of good things coming for them, so it's an exciting time for the program. I'm looking forward to getting to know their staff better as well."

It hasn't been too hard for Pitino to see Hurt, Nnaji, Garcia and Carlson during the spring live period, because they're all playing for the same AAU program. D1 Minnesota has six players with Gopher offers, including 2019 DeLaSalle point guard Tyrell Terry and 2019 Lakeville North wing Tyler Wahl, who received the offer just last week.

You can bet the D1 Minnesota crew will be following how the Gophers 2018 local class (including DeLaSalle guard Gabe Kalschuer) fares next season. Oturu sent a congratulatory tweet to Carlson on Monday night for the local offer.

"It's cool I got to play against him these past two years," Carlson said of Oturu. "He's a great guy and he'll be fun to watch in college."

per Brian Snow:

Ben Carlson, PF, D1 Minnesota – Another long and fairly athletic forward for D1 Minnesota, Carlson had a very strong showing on Saturday. He showed more athleticism than in previous viewings, and was also tougher around the rim and on the glass. Carlson is a very skilled kid, and one that shows big time potential.

247 says Carlson doesn’t have a Wisconsin offer right now, hopefully he isn’t actively seeking one out.
