Khalil London’s Path to the Charleston Cougars

When Charleston assistant Thomas Carr was coaching at Word of God (N.C.), they were getting set to play Khalil London’s Scotland Campus squad. Carr watched three of Scotland’s games to prepare for the matchup.

“Each game Khalil played with pace, skill and grit,” Carr said. “He is a prideful and competitive kid who has unlimited range and is extremely unselfish.”

London was set to spend his post-grad year for Chris Chaney at Southern California Academy, where high-majors like Rutgers and Seton Hall were among those interested, but he reclassified and went to Charleston this season — where he is sitting after suffering a torn ACL.
