Carroll is a solid all-around player and will do whatever the team needs him to do. Many viewed as a shot blocker, but his game has expanded as his career has progressed. He is able to go out on the perimeter and guard the perimeter players. He can now step out and make the three point shot, and still play down low and score. Carroll is a sleeper. Not to many people outside the MAAC know about his talent. He has the ability to play in the IBA, IBL, ABA 2000, or overseas. The team that gets him will be getting a tremendous player.
