When he committed to the Tigers, Barrett Carter‍ said the “water is different at Clemson,” but everyone we’ve talked to said the same could be said for Suwannee, GA area, as Carter’s athleticism is off the charts.

With today’s signature, Clemson reached into Georgia’s backyard and plucked another top player from the Peach State in the five-star linebacker‍. 

Carter is a guy who can fly around the field and moves well in space. Gaining his commitment today helps put Clemson in a good spot at linebacker down the road as one of his biggest strengths will be tremendous assets in Brent Venables’ scheme.

At the time of his commitment, Carter said he got butterflies for each visit to Tiger Town.

”I think that feeling just can't go unnoticed with the school, so that's why," said Carter on his decision to become a Tiger. "There's such a great balance of academics and sports. It's a school that can balance both of those, and that's the kind of school I want to be with."

Georgia, once considered the favorite carrying a lot of momentum early on, saw their grip slipping away as the Tigers snagged the state’s No. 4 overall prospect. Carter selected Clemson over the Bulldogs, Ohio State, and Auburn.
