ESPN.com and Rivals.com list Carter as a 4-star point guard, while 247Sports.com has him listed as a 3-star recruit. ESPN rates him as the fifth best player in the state of New Jersey.
This is an important signing for head coach Steve Wojciechowski. Not only does Carter bolster a very impressive inaugural recruiting class, led by top-5 forward Henry Ellenson, it also gives Marquette a natural point guard on the roster. Many consider Duane Wilson a point guard, but he is more of a scorer than a facilitator.
Carter replaces Sun Prairie native Nick Noskowiak, who decommitted from Marquette, who left his team momentarily to deal with personal issues.
Marquette now has four 4-star recruits in Carter, Haanif Cheatham, Matt Heldt and Sacar Anim, along with a program-changing talent in Ellenson. The addition of Carter gives Marquette 11 scholarship players on next year’s roster.
