Recruiting - Jared Carter

All 7'1" of him. The Jackets just offered this kid who is in the class of 2005. However, Kentucky also just offered him and expectations are that he will be a Wildcat.

UK continues its search for a big man in this recruiting class. The Wildcats have maintained contact with 7-1 Jared Carter of Scott County High School and offered the late-blooming big man a scholarship on Wednesday night after UK's game against Auburn.

Last week turned out to be big for Carter, who is averaging 15 points, nine rebounds and eight blocks. He also got an offer from Georgia Tech to go with previous offers from Boston College, Cincinnati, Western Kentucky, South Florida and Illinois. North Carolina also has been showing interest.
