Four-Star Athlete Boo Carter Commits to Tennessee In a significant development for the University of Tennessee's football program, Boo Carter, a highly coveted four-star athlete from Chattanooga, has officially chosen to join the Volunteers.
The eagerly awaited decision was made public during a live Instagram announcement, where Carter revealed his commitment to Tennessee over competing offers from Michigan, Colorado, Oregon, and Ohio State. This commitment comes hot on the heels of Carter's recent visit to Knoxville, which took place immediately after his official visit to Michigan.
The 5-foot-10, 184-pound versatile athlete, who is regarded as the second-ranked player in the state of Tennessee and sits at an impressive 208th overall in the 247Sports Composite Rankings, showcased his skills last season at Chattanooga Christian.
However, he has since transferred to Bradley Central High School for his senior year, where he will have the opportunity to team up with another highly regarded four-star recruit, Marcus Goree Jr., in the defensive backfield.
Carter's Defensive Potential Shines
While listed as an athlete capable of excelling on either side of the ball, it is worth noting that Tennessee sees Carter's most tremendous potential lying on the defensive side, particularly as a safety.
The Volunteers have been actively bolstering their depth in the defensive backfield, having secured commitments from four-star Kaleb Beasley, four-star Marcus Goree Jr., and three-star safety Edrees Farooq. With Carter's addition, the program now boasts 12 commitments for their 2024 class, showcasing their continued efforts to recruit top talent.
Carter's decision to commit to Tennessee represents a significant victory for the Volunteers, as they successfully secured one of the most sought-after in-state prospects. His commitment underscores the program's growing appeal and ability to attract high-caliber recruits.
With his impressive skill set and potential, Carter is poised to make a meaningful impact on the Tennessee football program in the coming years as they strive for success both within the state and nationally.
