With a number of high schools in the Southeast out for Spring Break, the visitors have become more frequent at the University of Alabama’s practices. On Friday, Snellville, Ga./South Gwinnett linebacker Reggie Carter was on hand for practice.
“The visit went good,” Carter said. “I like how practice was run. They got so many reps. I’ve done some of the drills, but there was some I didn’t do, and I like how Kirby Smart runs the linebackers.”
During his visit to Tuscaloosa, Carter got a chance to sit down and talk with Smart, the Crimson Tide’s defensive coordinator who serves as Carter’s main recruiter and would also be his position coach at UA.
“He was just telling me what their linebackers do, and he was trying to get me up their for camp,” Carter said.
Carter, an ESPNU 150 Watch List member, has offers from a number of schools including Georgia, Florida State, Nebraska, North Carolina and South Carolina, but he’s still hoping to get one from Alabama.
“Kirby said he’s going to come up there this spring and do his evaluation then,” Carter said.
The UA coaching staff likes the 6-foot-1, 225-pound prospect at inside linebacker, but he played both inside and outside linebacker in high school last year.
Carter plans to visit South Carolina later this week.
