Wendell Carter is one of the most highly coveted players in the class of 2017. He’s ranked No. 3 overall by ESPN and is the top power forward in the class. The 6’10”, 250-pound big man can pound opponents down low, shoot the mid-range jumper and is deceptively quick for someone his size.
Carter has already narrowed down his list of schools to four schools in Georgia, Georgia Tech, Duke and Harvard. Carter is one of the smartest players in the ESPN Top 100 and that is one of the reasons Harvard is seriously in the running for signing him. All of these schools will find out soon enough though as Carter revealed that he plans to sign on November 23rd.
Kylia Carter said that her son will sign the letter of intent Wednesday, take the rest of the week and weekend to be sure of his decision and put it in the mail early next week and send letters of regret to the other three coaches. When the chosen school has confirmed receipt of the letter of intent, he will make his decision known through a video posted on his Twitter account.
He clearly has thought this through and now three schools are going to be sorely disappointed next week. Duke is considered the favorite right now and Coach K has made Carter a huge priority in this class so having him signed on early would be huge for recruiting in the spring signing period.
