Some of the closest people to Desman Carter told him to strongly consider his first offer because that school believed in him first.
The Fontana (Calif.) Kaiser safety took that message to heart and after visiting Nevada this past weekend he decided to end his recruitment and make a commitment.
"Over the whole recruiting process my dad and I and my uncle and some of us were talking and they said to really consider the first school that's offering you," Carter said.
"That's the first school that believes in you. I was waiting for the whole year and I finally got one and what (assistant) coach (Ken) Wilson told me about the school helped me make my decision."
Carter is a 6-foot-1, 193-pound three-star safety who was hearing from a bunch of programs but in recent weeks picked up his first offer from Nevada and things took off fast from there.
Carter had an in-home visit with Wilson and then the Kaiser standout took his trip to Nevada this past weekend. Everything seemed to fit so Carter made his decision to commit.
"When coach (Wilson) came to the in-house visit he was explaining how everything worked down there so that really got me," Carter said.
"After that I wanted to see how it was for myself. I want to go to school for criminal justice and they have a good criminal justice program. I wanted to interact with the players to see how that would go and it went really well so I went ahead and made my decision.
"They're really disciplined and they're really strict with their players, what they can do and what they can't do. I really liked it there."
Rivals.com rates Carter as the No. 34 safety in the 2011 class and the No. 48 prospect in the California state rankings.
