    DE Lorenzo Carter Updates

    He needs his own thread... Someone in another thread said UF was his new leader, but Carter himself said Alabama was in the lead..


    Jeremy Crabtree from ESPN wrote the following:
    Carter said he was getting sick of the recruiting game on Tuesday and wanted to take a step back from the attention. But then he announced Alabama as his new leader on Wednesday, causing the attention to snowball even more. Carter has had Bama and UGA in the lead for quite some time, and the two will likely hold their spots unless somebody else can come along and impress him during the fall. Carter still has a lot of visits to take and is nowhere near a decision at this point.

    Re: DE Lorenzo Carter Updates

    Pretty obvious this is a kid who has no real idea of what he wants to do at this juncture. Within the past two weeks, he first wanted to step back from the recruiting scene, then named 'Bama his leader, and now it looks like Florida might be out front. I think it's safe to say his mind changes every other hour at this point.

    Very talented kid, though, and we'll keep going after him for a while. From the looks of things, though, he's going to be one who only goes on NSD.

    With social media going 24/7 I would think it impossible to step back to evaluate which school he really wants to attend. Of course, if he dumped tweeting, FB, the internet, and got rid of his phone and television, maybe he could have peace and quiet. However, how many high schoolers do you know who would be willing to give up even their cell phone.

    Probably as many as adults would.

    I know what you mean but there are plenty of high profile recruits who have relatively non exciting recruitments. They have to participate in it or the hoopla doesn't get created.

    He is not an instant impact recruit IMO. Needs year or two to develop.

    I think he could be an instant impact recruit in the right position. He could make an impact at Jack LB but with Jonathan Allen already on campus that may not be a huge need so UA could develop him and size him up to be a dangerous DE which like you said would take a year or two.

    From what I've heard/read, he's a huge Bama lean. I'm not sure how accurate the predictions on 247 have been in the past, but 40/43 contributors predict that he'll wind up in Tuscaloosa.

    247 staff are among the best in the business. If they say Bama is " in pretty good shape" , they know what they are talking about. But recruiting is very fluid, with that said, the 247 staff are right more often than wrong.

    Re: DE Lorenzo Carter Updates

    Per BOL, unfortunately Carter will not be able to make the weekend trip. According to sources, his coaches are not able to accompany him on the trip. There were other conflicting reports that his HS coaches could not reach the Bama staff for the unofficial visit. The latter seems very unlikely. It now appears that his next visit will be the official one.
