Carrigan (6-9, 215 lbs.) has played collegiately at three different schools, earning an associate degree at Odessa Community College and his undergraduate degree this year at FIU. A native of Boston, he began his college career at Bunker Hill Community College in his hometown, where he averaged 19.6 points, 17.9 rebounds and 7.3 blocked shots per game in 14 games as a freshman.
For his sophomore season, he moved on to Odessa, where he tallied 4.6 points, 5.9 rebounds and 2.7 blocks per contest in his 34 games. At FIU as a junior in 2019-20, he averaged 3.2 points and 3.3 rebounds while averaging 11.7 minutes per game in a backup role, and continued his rim protection by tallying 1.3 blocks per contest. He moved into a starting role in his senior season with the Panthers, bumping his total up to 6.8 points and 6.1 rebounds in nearly 20 minutes per outing. He also added another 60 blocked shots to his total, giving him 94 in his two seasons at FIU.
Cincinnati, Duquesne, Hofstra, Montana, Murray State and New Mexico State were among the schools expressing interest in Carrigan.
Carrigan was an efficient shooter this past year, making 62% of his tries from the field, and was alao seventh nationally in block percentage, rejecting 12.9% of opponents two-point field goal attempts while he was on the floor.
