Georgia interested in Michael Carter

ATHENS - This talented prospect out of Pompano Beach, FL is hearing from a lot of top programs, and Georgia is one of them.

Rated by as a four star product and the 24th best cornerback prospect in the nation, it is understandable that Michael Carter is hearing from some of the nation's top programs. Out of his numerous offers, he already has some schools that he knows will get a visit.

"I'm going to visit Florida, Georgia, Miami and Minnesota," Carter said.

And despite being very close to Miami, his intention to visit programs as far away as Minnesota demonstrates that proximity to his home will not a be huge factor in his final decision.

"Distance really doesn't matter," he said. "Right now I'm kind of open. I'm giving colleges chances now to see what kind of colleges they are as well as academic wise, things like that – getting a degree."

One school that's a bit farther from home is Georgia, but Carter is interested in the Bulldogs and they certainly appear interested in him.

"I know that they've got a good coaching staff, that they're a good school for DBs that want to come in and go to the next level," he said, adding that defensive coordinator Willie Martinez had just been by practice to watch him play.

Renowned Georgia recruiter Aaron Murray is also working on Carter, but that doesn't mean he will be pulling the trigger any time soon for Georgia, or any other school for that matter.

"I'm going to take all my official visits and just cruise through the process and pick the college that's for me," Carter said. And in picking the college right for him, he said he's looking for "A good academic program, a good coaching staff, and early playing time."

Only time will tell where Carter decides to attend school, but he's certainly a player to keep an eye on.
