This year’s crop of Georgia college basketball prospects is led by “The Big 3” – three power forwards from the Atlanta area that are all ranked among the nation’s top 25 overall players.
You know about Southwest DeKalb’s Shaq Goodwin, who lists UGA, Florida, Memphis, and Alabama as his leaders. UGA and Memphis are the rumored frontrunners.
You know about Miller Grove’s Tony Parker, who made an official visit to Ohio State last weekend, and has recruiting trips planned for Duke and UCLA.
The “mystery guy” of the Big 3 is Robert Carter, and that’s because he played at Thomasville High School before transferring to Gwinnett County’s Shiloh High School for his senior year.
Courtcred.com’s Corey Cooper had an interesting perspective on Carter:

Some college coaches from a D1 program out west were in the building but not to see Robert Carter, and their first question to me was, “Who is this kid? I began to tell them that he is a Top 25 player in the nation and after they watched 5 minutes of his workout they were convinced.
Carter remains a mystery on his recruiting: The 6-f00t-9 Carter lists Kentucky, FSU, Georgia Tech, UGA, Rhode Island and Maryland among his favorites.
