T.J. Carter the class of 2017 four-star defensive back is wrapped up in playing his final year of high school football, but that hasn’t stopped him from looking ahead to the 2017 football season. Despite his grueling fall schedule, the prospect from Nashville has several high-profile universities competing for his attention—including Auburn, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Memphis, Mississippi State, and University of South Carolina. While T.J. didn’t get to visit all of those schools over the summer, he planning on rectifying that sometime in the autumn, and specifically giving the Gamecocks of South Carolina a good hard look.
According to the young DB, “South Carolina is at the top of my list. I want to get there for a game and see what it’s like.” He’s already visited the South Carolina campus once and liked them. Plus, it seems U.S.C. has already made him an offer to come play. He says he really enjoyed the campus experience and coaches, according to rivals.com. T.J. also added that new Gamecock coach Muschamp has an impressive history of producing defensive backs and high octane defenses and that is what initially drew his interest to the school.
However, rivals.com is quick to point out that, while the 5’11, corner back is keen on the Gamecocks, nothing is written in stone just yet. He still has a few other schools to visit before the final decision is made. He has already made trips to Memphis and Louisville. It remains to be seen where he stands on the school recruiting board following a strong summer of good commitments. Either way, it appears that T.J. can look forward to a fall full of travel and football.
