3/10 Recruiting Roundup

Posted by Bryan Fischer

Quite the blunder at the end of the St. Johns - Rutgers basketball game in the Big East tournament. What would the football recruiting equivalent be? An NCAA violation that the association does nothing about?

- In case you've missed it, Oregon is not the only program that pays for recruiting services.

- Georgia has self-reported five NCAA violations concerning the recruitment of defensive end Ray Drew.

- More on Miami's most recent commit, wide receiver Jontavious Carter.

- Michigan is looking to go back to Our Lady of Good Counsel High School after signing cornerback Blake Countess in 2011. The Wolverines are hoping to land a commitment from Countess' close friend, wide receiver Stefon Diggs.

Carter commits to 'The U'

Posted by Bryan Fischer 

Miami picked up the commitment of standout Cordale (Ga.) basketball player Jontavious Carter Wednesday night. The first year football player is also a pretty talented wide receiver and when the Hurricanes extended a scholarship offer in the sport, he was quick to accept.

"Miami got my film in the mail and they watched it today. I called Coach [Brennan] Carroll to make sure they got it and he told me they saw it and that they wanted to offer me a full ride to Miami," Carter told Scout. "I talked to Carroll for a little bit, then I talked to Coach [Al] Golden and I told him I wanted to be part of 'The U'. He told me to talk to my family and then to call him back."

The 6-foot-4, 200 pound carter did not hold any offers before Miami but was drawing interest from several schools across the south. Although it was the first offer, it was also the offer Carter was looking for.

"Miami is the offer I wanted," he added. "I am ready to be a Cane, I want to get down there early, and I am just going to keep working so I am ready when I get there."

Carter receiver is the eighth commit for the 'Canes class fo 2012 and the first at his position.
