Carter adding college interest

After sitting out the entire spring and summer, Traci Carter, a top 100 point guard in the 2015 class, is getting healthy and starting to add college interest.

The point guard position in the 2015 class is easily the spot that lacks the most depth, so when a new name or a familiar name re-emerges at the position it’s worth taking note of.

Last season I watched Traci Carter, of Burlington (N.J.) Life Center, torch the nets at the National Hoops Festival. His performance landed him a spot in the top 20 at the point guard position and in’s 2015 top 100.

Unfortunately, Carter, who stands 6-foot, missed the entire spring and summer with a torn meniscus. Prior to the injury, Cincinnati, Villanova, Temple and others were involved.

“It was a slow process and frustrating for him,” Donnie Carr, Carter's mentor, said. “He completed his rehab and now he’s focused on getting to 100-percent with his conditioning and his timing.”

The setback caused Carter’s recruitment to take a dip, but now with just three of the top 15 point guards in the 2015 available, interest is surging, according to Carr.

“His recruitment is just starting to pick up,” Carr told “He’s starting to really get a lot of interest form some really good schools.”

Among the schools that have shown recent interest include SMU, Tennessee, Auburn, Providence, Tulsa and Dayton.

“He’s been hearing from a lot school the past couple of weeks,” Carr added. “No one has offered yet but they’ve all expressed really strong interest.”

According to Carr, Carter hasn’t taken any visits and he was adamant that the four-star guard is open with his recruitment.

Carter is ranked No. 16 at the point guard position and No. 92 overall in the 2015 recruiting class.
