Carter picks Georgia Tech

Yet another five-star prospect has made his choice. Last night it was Gary Harris picking Michigan State. Thursday afternoon Poythress picked Kentucky and now Robert Carter is off the board.

Robert Carter's signing week announcement is in.

After contemplating strong interest from Georgia Tech, Georgia, Maryland, Florida and Rhode Island, Carter selected Brian Gregory's Yellow Jackets.

"I'm going to Georgia Tech," Carter told Scout.com in an exclusive interview.

"Ever since coach Gregory got there he just showed me that he wanted me to come there and he showed me that it would be the perfect place for me," the five-star prospect added.

Carter, a 6-foot-9 post prospect out of Lithonia (Ga.) Shiloh, took official visits to Georgia Tech, Georgia and Florida.

"Just a couple of days ago we sat down," Carter, the No. 7 center on Scout.com, said. "We went through it all on paper and I just felt deep inside that Georgia Tech was the school."

"It was a hard decision," Carter said. "It came down to my last three schools of Florida, Georgia and Georgia Tech and we just realized that was the best decision for me."

Carter, who is one of the top post scorers in the country, said he thinks Gregory will help him improve on the court.

"I'm going to be able to come in and score the basketball," he said. "One of the big things he is going to do is help me develop and help me get better and get to the next level. I think we are going to have a pretty good chance to win."

Carter joins Georgia Tech's recruiting class that also consists of four-star prospect Marcus Hunt and three-star standout Chris Bolden.
