Shiloh High's Robert Carter took an official visit to the University of Georgia over the weekend in the first of five planned trips for the 6-foot-9 power forward. Next up for Carter will be a Friday trip to Atlanta to visit with Brian Gregory and the Georgia Tech Yellowjackets.
When Carter arrived in Athens, he was greeted by McDonald's All-American Kentavious Caldwell-Pope who acted as his host for the weekend. Both Carter and Southwest Dekalb star Shaq Goodwin are top 25 prospects who have the Bulldogs listed in their top 5. However, according to Carter, Mark Fox has declared Carter as Georgia's No. 1 priority.
"They really want me; Coach Fox has told me that I'm the first option at power forward since day one and that they are saving a scholarship for me," Carter said. "I guess they are recruiting [Goodwin] but they really want me to come there because they say I really fit their system well as a big man who can score. Georgia said they have me on their recruiting board as their No. 1 guy, and that really meant a lot to me."
Carter stated that he enjoyed his visit to Athens but left without a commitment while stating that he had nothing to compare the visit to. In addition to visiting the Yellow Jackets, Carter has trips planned to Florida, Florida State and either Kentucky or Maryland.
