Robert Carter stays in-state, chooses Georgia Tech

Daryl Paunil/NRS

Class of 2012 power forward Robert Carter decided to stay close to home today when he committed to Georgia Tech over Florida and Georgia, citing location and comfort level as the main reasons why.

“I have a big family — six sisters and one brother — and my entire family is in the state of Georgia,” the 6’8, 260-pound big man told ESPN.com. “My heart just felt Georgia Tech was right for me.”

He also appreciated the level of interest they showed in him. “They were at almost every one of my games this summer,” he said. “It showed me I was important to the program.”

Carter will be joining shooting guard Chris Bolden and small forward Marcus Hunt as Georgia Tech head coach Brian Gregory‘s senior commitments. The Yellow Jackets are also going after shooting guards Shaq Roland and Andrew White as well as power forwards Tevin Glass, Charles Mitchell and Christopher Obekpa in the class of 2012.

Here’s an excerpt of our evaluation of Carter:

Carter is one of the best post-players in the country and exhibited numerous impressive moves that showed off his footwork and intelligence. His interior scoring moves are ahead of most of the big men in the class of 2012 and he has the ability to run the floor and score in transition as well. He is an excellent rebounder too and has the size and strength to battle with big men down low but also has the quickness and footwork to play well against more athletic forwards.
