If you remember recently, we wrote an article called “Recognize the Name: Soph. Chico Charter Jr.” The reason why is just what the South Carolina native had been doing with the program through two years. Playing in 48 total games so far through his young career, Carter has been averaging 9.7ppg and 2.1apg, while shooting nearly 49 percent from the floor and 43 percent from three.
That is over two years… This past season, he played in 26 games, averaged 12.7ppg, 1.9apg, shot 51 percent from the floor, and 44 percent from three in just 24 minutes of play. Expand that to his per 40 minutes, Carter would be posting averages of 21.0ppg and hitting nearly three 3-pointers a game, while also averaging 2.8rpg, 3.2apg, and 1.9spg.
Which is why Carter, once he announced he would be heading into the transfer portal, was going to be an intriguing guard for many teams. He has the blend of experience and youth, just finishing up his sophomore campaign but has played a lot of basketball at a high level and produced.
Shortly after his announcement, Carter has picked up multiple offers from schools like UAB, Weber State, Charlotte, Elon, Nicholls State, James Madison, Northeastern, and Marshall. And don’t expect it to stop there.
What has Phenom Hoops Said in the Past:
“Offensively, he demands a lot of attention as a scorer, especially if gets established early. There have been multiple occasions where Carter has torched the opponent with his incredible efficiency, but he rarely tried to force the action. He truly embraces being a point guard, showcasing a high IQ, sharp passing instincts, and frequently looking to get others involved. However, Carter can really manipulate opposing defenses with his three-level scoring and is a constant threat to flirt with triple-doubles. His frame is quite strong and he absorbs contact exceptionally well around the rim on defense, finishes, and rebounds. There isn’t much to dislike about Carter’s game; he’s just a terrific all-around basketball player. He’s a leader in every sense and understands how to elevate his supporting cast with any roster. Carter is also a quality defender and competitor, making life dreadful for opposing guards while forcing one turnover after another.”
