Carter is a freshman at Cedar Grove High School in Ellenwood, Georgia. He holds 12 D1 offers, including offers from Georgia, Florida and LSU. His dad Dexter Carter is a former NFL running back, who suited up for Florida State before being selected by the San Francisco 49ers in the first round of the 1990 NFL Draft.
Alabama became the 12th program to offer Carter during his visit to Tuscaloosa Wednesday when Nick Saban informed him of his offer.
“I was excited and proud,” Carter told Touchdown Alabama. “There is still more work to do but definitely a dream come true.”
The freshman went on to give his thoughts about Alabama.
“They are at the top of college football, and I believe they are where everybody wants to be,” Carter said. “The culture is set where it needs to be. It is a blessing to have an opportunity at a place like Alabama.”
Saban did give Carter some advice during their conversation.
“He talked about how they liked my game, and to stay humble and keep working,” said Carter.
At 6-foot and 165 pounds, Carter did not play like your typical freshman during the 2022 football season. He thrived when pulling in contested catches and displayed an ability to be a tough runner with the football in his hand after the catch. The new Alabama target was also an advanced route runner.
