In-star four-star prospect Boo Carter was back in Knoxville on Wednesday to take a look at Tennessee football. His unofficial visit comes not long before his planned commitment announcement, slated for Saturday.
The 2024 athlete out of Bradley Central High School in Tennessee posted on Twitter and Instagram of his visit. “Where my Tennessee fans at?” Carter posted along with a picture of Tennessee’s campus.
Carter’s college decision will be announced on Saturday at 8 p.m. ET at the 40/40 Club in New York. His top five schools include Tennessee, Michigan, Colorado, Ohio State and Oregon. Currently, Michigan and Tennessee are the front runners for Carter.
Carter ranks as the No. 206 prospect nationally and the No. 17 athlete in his class according to 247Sports Composite. He also ranks as the No. 2 prospect from the state of Tennessee.
Although listed as an athlete, Tennessee views 5-foot-10, 184-pound Carter as a defensive back. The Vols were the first school to offer Carter back in May of 2021. His current visit, which will likely be multiple days, is expected to last multiple days. This will also be his third time on campus in as many weeks.
He was on campus for the Alabama and Florida games in the fall and also traveling to Knoxville for the first junior day of the year.
Carter’s current visit comes fresh off an official visit. Tennessee has been the clear favorite for Carter’s talents for some time, but Michigan is picking up steam as of recent.
Both 247Sports’ Crystal Balls point Carter to Tennessee, with Steve Wiltfong projecting he will end up in the orange and white.
Carter spent his junior season at Chattanooga Christian School before transferring to Brainerd for the basketball season. He is spending his senior season at Bradley Central due to TSSAA rules that state he would not be allowed to play a sport at a high school less than 20 miles away from his former school.
He had 678 yards and 18 TDs on the ground, and he had 36 receptions for 780 yards and 10 TDs through the air for CCS.
The 2024 class for Tennessee is currently comprised of four-star quarterback Jake Merklinger, four-star athlete Johnathan Echols, four-star cornerback Kaleb Beasley, four-star Peyton Lewis, four-star Marcus Goree Jr. and three-star defensive linemen Carson Gentle and Jeremais Heard along with three-star offensive linemen Gage Ginther and Jesse Perry.
The momentum is picking up for Josh Heupel and his group heading into the summer.
