Carter sorting through process

Five-star prospect Robert Carter sheds some light on where he stands in his recruitment.

Very few players in the 2012 class have the skill level on the interior that is possessed by Robert Carter. The low post scorer knows how to play and is attracting serious recruiting attention. Now Carter is just beginning to sort through everything on the recruiting trail.

Carter has opened up a lot of eyes so far this summer with his play. He is now a five-star, prospect ranked No. 11 overall, and Carter says it is due to his increased athleticism to go with his skill.

"I am just working on my athleticism," said Carter. "I am trying to dunk the ball whenever I can. Sometimes I can rely too much on my skill with jump hooks and everything, but I am working to be more aggressive and assertive."

Schools like Ohio State, Kentucky, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Alabama, Maryland and others are all involved with Carter at the moment, but he is keeping everything even for now.

"Everything is even for me right now and pretty much the same," said Carter. "I am just going through the process and talking to everyone the same right now, but by the end of the summer I want to have a list of who I will visit."

There has been talk and speculation about Carter and the University of Kentucky, but if the Wildcats have offered it is news to Carter.

"People have been talking about Kentucky with me, and I have talked to them before, but they just told me they are showing interest," Carter explained. "I guess someone else must have heard more and blew it up."

One thing is for sure, Carter doesn't plan on making any kind of quick decision.

"I think I will take all five official visits, but I don't have any planned in the near future," said Carter. "Just whoever I decide is in my top five is who I will visit."

When forming that top five list and deciding who to visit, Carter says certain factors will go into the choice.

"I just want to go somewhere will I will be comfortable and somewhere where I can play right away," Carter explained. "I also am looking for trust in the head coach and someone who will be loyal to me."
