Georgia State picked up another commitment for its 2013 class on Monday in 6-foot-4 quarterback Oshay Carter out of Jacksonville Florida. Carter picked the Panthers over schools such as Troy, Rice and Florida International.
"Georgia State was one of the better offers I had left, and I wanted to go ahead and make my decision now so I don't have to worry about it my senior year," Carter said. "I'll be visiting in August, and that's only two weeks away. I'm pretty sure I will like it. Atlanta is a nice city."
Carter is the third commitment for the Panthers and their 2013 class. He joins wide receiver Devonte Washington and wideout/defensive back BJ Clay as the others. Carter really wanted to play the quarterback position in college and that opportunity helped him select the Panthers.

Georgia State picked up its second commitment for its 2013 football recruiting class in Dacula High's BJ Clay. At 6-foot and 175 pounds Clay is expected to play either defensive back or wide receiver with the Panthers.
Clay had received interest from UT-Chattanooga and some from Vanderbilt but the Panthers were the first to offer a scholarship. He committed while on an unofficial visit to the campus with his family.
"It just felt a good vibe about the place," Clay told the AJC. "The coaches communicated well with my family and I, as well as the current players. It was just a good environment. And I also like that I will get the chance to play for a great coaching legend like Bill Curry."
Clay joins Jacksonville, Florida wide receiver Devonte Washington as part of the Panthers' 2013 commitments.
