Hoops: Recruiting

We are still in the running for Jared Carter and the Jackets had a conversation with Carter this week and are evidently pushing hard.

Carter, a 7-foot-2 senior at Scott County, listed North Carolina and Kentucky as the leaders. He's also considering Georgia Tech. He said he hoped to decide by mid-April. The month-long spring signing period begins April 13 and ends May 18.

All three schools have spoken to Carter this week, he said.

Of the three, Georgia Tech had pushed the hardest for Carter to make an official visit, he said.
