Georgia State picked up a commitment at QB, despite the fact that he’s never visited the campus.
Oshay Carter, a 6-foot-4, 230-pounder from Jackonsville, committed to Georgia State over Florida International, Troy, Rice, Tennessee State and Florida A&M. He was also being recruited by Central Florida as an “athlete.”
“Georgia State was one of the better offers I had left, and I wanted to go ahead and make my decision now so I don’t have to worry about it my senior year,” Carter said. “I’ll be visiting in August, and that’s only two weeks away. I’m pretty sure I will like it. Atlanta is a nice city.”
Carter knows Georgia State’s coaches because he worked out for them at a summer camp last month at Camden County High School. Carter already had an offer from Georgia State before the camp, but decided to participate anyways.
“I got to spend some times with the coaches, and I really liked them,” Carter said. “I talked to [WR Devonte Washington, who is also committed to Georgia State]. He said the campus is beautiful. Out of all the places he visited, he said Georgia State has some of the best facilities. I’ll be going there on Aug. 3 with my parents.”
Carter has always wanted to play QB in college. “It has been my dream since I was little. My parents supported me 100 percent with this decision. I get the opportunity to play QB at Georgia State and I’m excited.”
Last month, another Florida quarterback (DJ Juste) committed to Georgia State and then changed his mind two days later because he felt like he rushed it.
