Lakeland (Fla.) Lake Gibson three-star wide receiver Eric Carter didn't want to wait any longer. The 5-foot-10, 174-pound wide receiver evaluated a dozen offers and decided upon a school that he felt fit him the best.
"I am committing to Cincinnati," Carter said.
The Central Florida prospect explained a few reasons why he opted for the Bearcats over Florida International, Iowa State, Marshall, Minnesota, Missouri, Purdue, Western Kentucky, and others.
"I love Cincinnati's offense," Carter said. "They have a great bunch of wide receivers. I know that if I work hard enough I can play early."
A couple of coaches on Butch Jones' staff deserve a great deal of credit for landing his commitment.
"Coach (Dave) Johnson and Coach (T.J.) Weist," Carter said. "Coach Weist was coaching me up over the summer and I like what he was talking about. Me and Coach Johnson talk more often, because he is the recruiter for my area. We have a good relationship and we talk about how playing football is about becoming a better man.
"It just seems like Cincinnati is a brotherhood," Carter added.
Carter plans to hit the road next month to check out the Bearcats.
"I am going to Cincinnati on July 19," Carter said.
Carter plans to be an early enrollee at Cincinnati.
