Thoughts From Carter After Bama Visit

Jason Carter, a 6-8, 2330-pound forward from Humble, Texas, seems to be deciding between Alabama and Ole Miss. Distance will not be a factor. It is 600 miles to both Tuscaloosa and Oxford from his home in Humble, Texas. Here are notes and quotes from his official visit with the Crimson Tide this past weekend.

Official Visit to The University of Alabama comments and thoughts:

Jason's parents accompanied him on the visit to Tuscaloosa.

Jason was escorted around campus by Alabama junior forward, Chris Hines.

Campus Tour by Chris Hines - "He (Hines) showed me the facilities, the basketball court and the academic building. He showed me the atmosphere and I felt it. It was real good. I liked everything."

Impression of the facilities - "I liked the facilities. Everything looked like new and he said there was a lot of construction being done. I like it. It was nice."

Assessment of the Paul W. Bryant Academic Center – "It was great. It looks like I could spend a lot of time in the academic center and get some work done to be successful for four years."

Atmosphere in Tuscaloosa - "The A-Day crowd was crazy. We were on the field. A lot of people were taking pictures of me and showing a lot of love."

Vibes – "I'm a big vibe guy. I felt a great, great, great vibe at Alabama."

Alabama coaching staff - "They said that I would be a great fit for their program. They said I have great character to be in their program and I would fit in their offense. They think I would be able to help change the program around and have a successful basketball season. They like my shot jump, the way I run the floor, rebound and they like my game and how versatile I can be to play a lot of positions."

Alabama basketball team - "I like the players. They seem like a family. They look out for you and make sure you are having fun. I thought the players were real cool."

Commenting on the official visits to Alabama and Ole Miss – "I just think both schools are nice. I am satisfied with both of them. They both are nice places and nice towns. I think they were both great. I'm still going over things and thinking about things. I can tell you that neither school has made a jump over the top of the other. They are both still on the list and great schools."

On possible official visits to other unnamed schools - "I'm not sure yet."

Kendall Durant, Weatherford (TX) College 6'3" combo guard and recent Alabama commitment - "I met him on the visit. I got along with him very well. He's a very cool dude."

Head Coach Anthony Grant – "He's a great guy. I like talking to him. He has a great personality and is somebody I could be around."

Assistant Coach Antoine Pettway – "That is my dude. Coach Pettway and I have a great relationship. We've been talking since last summer so him and I kind of know each other well because he has been recruiting me for a long time. He'll be a big part of the reason why if I decide to go to Alabama, he'll be a big part of the reason.

Carter intends to sign by the May 19th spring signing deadline.
