Carter is a huge offensive guard prospect from Groveland (Fla.) Southlake High School. He recently injured his hand and actually had surgery today after his commitment to the Gators.
"I tripped in a hole and fell funny on my hand. My hand actually hit a log and I had minor surgery today. I should be OK in about a month."
Carter, 6-5 and 330 pounds, committed to Florida over Oklahoma, BYU, Auburn and Kansas State.
"It was a very tough decision. I prayed about it and just felt that I needed to get it done. Last night I got the feeling that I wanted to be a Florida Gator."
Carter carries a 3.8 grade point average and he has scored a 1020 SAT. He bench presses 450 and squats 600.
