2023 Carl Cherenfant Talks Recruitment, Winning Back-to-Back FHSAA State Titles, and More

Carl Cherenfant is probably one of the most underrated prospects we have right now in that 2023 class.

He is a 6-foot-5 athletic guard, capable of hitting the outside shot, finish through traffic, make plays with the ball, and is one of the best defenders we have to witness in his class.

I spoke with Carl recently regarding his recruitment and how that has been going for him.

“My recruitment has been going good, just continuing to take my time with the process, making sure I make the right choice when it’s said and done.” He tells me.

He currently has offers from schools like Western Kentucky, LSU, Memphis, Kansas State, Virginia Tech, Iona, App State, Florida Atlantic, South Florida, New Mexico State, and St. John’s with interest from schools like Texas, Saint Joseph, and Cincinnati.

He told me schools like Memphis, LSU, St. John’s, Saint Joseph, Texas, Virginia Tech, Iona, and Cincinnati have been in contact with him the most recently.

I asked him which schools has he taken visits too already and does he plan on taking any future visits?

“I visited Memphis and Kansas State, but when Bruce Weber was there. I plan on visiting St. John’s and Texas but I haven’t got a date yet.” He answered.

The rising senior has helped secure two straight FHSAA state championship with Calvary Christian (FL), one of the top-ranked national teams the past two seasons.

I asked Cherenfant how has that experience been for him over the last two years and knowing that they have played on the national stage also?

“It’s been a great experience playing at Calvary. Having the winning culture we have shown the past two years and having the opportunity to play on a national level against the best, you can’t ask for anymore. I can stay in my home town to play on this stage and not have to live at a prep school to get this type of attention.” He answered.

Whichever college program Carl decides to go to in a couple years, that program is getting a prospect that will consistently play hard and be impactful on both sides of the ball.

I asked Carl one last question before ending our interview. What do you think you need to improve on with your game as you develop?

“Being a more consistent shooter from everywhere on the floor and my playmaking for others getting people in position to make easy shots or plays.” He told me.
