AT A GLANCE

Carter committed to the Tigers over, most notably, Michigan. The Georgia product played defensive end and fullback in high school, but he’s projected to play fullback for LSU. He’s a hard-hitting prospect who has been playing fullback since he was 6. Running backs coach Jabbar Juluke oversaw Carter's recruitment. He helped lock in the fullback despite Jim Harbaugh's overtures. Carter visited Michigan in November, before a Jan. 13 official visit to LSU secured his pledge. 

HONORS AND ACHIEVEMENTS

Recorded 52 tackles, including 11 for loss, and had nine sacks as a senior. ... According to some outlets, Carter is the top-ranked fullback in the 2017 class. 

WHAT THEY’RE SAYING

“Carter played a lot of defensive line in high school, so he has that toughness you like, but what most don't know is his athleticism. He has been recruited to play fullback, and he will open holes for running backs and be able to catch a pass or two out of the backfield.” — Scout.com’s Chad Simmons
