Carter has breakout July

Schools are rushing to get into the recruiting mix with fast rising guard Tyson Carter.

Coming in to July not a ton was known about Tyson Carter. The native of Mississippi was gaining interest in local circles, but not a major national name. That all changed for Carter with his play all month long.

“My summer went really good,” said Carter. “My recruiting is picking up and I am playing well.”

He continued, “I am trying to get stronger for sure. I know I have to get stronger, and I have also been working on my shot.”

Recruiting wise Carter has picked up significant interest, and more and more schools continue to come into the fray.

Iowa State, Memphis, Mississippi State, Miami, South Alabama, Oklahoma State, Arizona State, NC State, Vanderbilt, and UNLV are the schools I am hearing from,” said Carter.

He went on to say, “I haven’t decided where I want to visit yet, but I know I want to make some visits.”

One school that has a ton of connections to Carter is Mississippi State.

“I have lived in Starkville my whole life,” explained Carter. “They were the second school to offer me. After that things began to pick up. My dad played at Mississippi State so it was great to get an offer from them.”

While Iowa State hasn’t been recruiting Carter for a while, the coaching staff has, and he has built a solid relationship with them.

“The coaches were at Murray State and they offered me there and they have kept recruiting me,” explained Carter. “I know they have a really good basketball environment there, and I like the coaches.”

For now Carter is taking things one step at a time, but he does know what he is looking for in a school.

“I am looking for a school that plays an up tempo style and somewhere that I will be successful,” said Carter.
