Carter could play on either side of the ball in college but Tennessee is recruiting him as a defensive back after the lightning fast athlete impressed in the Vols’ summer recruiting camps last year.
Tennessee has long been the favorites in Carter’s recruitment and still are according to the 247sports crystal ball and the On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine.
Carter has visited Tennessee four times including twice in 2023 and for Tennessee football’s win over Florida last season. But the four-star recruit has taken three visits to Michigan and has an official visit scheduled to Ann Arbor before his commitment date.
The Chattanooga native has twice visited Colorado and once visited Ohio State during his recruitment.
Tennessee football’s 2023 recruiting class currently contains 12 commits including three defensive backs. Four-star Kaleb Beasley projects to play corner at Tennessee while four-star Marcus Goree Jr. and three-star Edrees Farooq project as safeties.
The Vols’ 12 commit recruiting class currently ranks eighth nationally according to the 247sports team rankings.
