Georgia men's basketball coach Mark Fox and his staff are looking to put the finishing touches on a potential top 25 recruiting class, with the last spot being held for an elite post player. They will get the chance to make a big impression on one of the best in the country on Friday, when five-star power forward Robert Carter (Snellville, Ga./Shiloh) makes the short trip to Athens for his first official visit.

Carter, a Thomasville native, hopes to learn a lot this weekend about how Georgia would utilize him in its offense were he to sign with the Bulldogs.

Davide De PasESPNU 100 PF Robert Carter, who has his first official visit set up this weekend to Georgia, wants to sign in the early period (Nov. 10-17).
"I am looking for the school that I know what I can come in and do," Carter said. "The biggest thing I want to figure out on my officials is just how the school breaks down, what they do in their scheme. I know all of the schools I am considering like to use their bigs a lot, and that is why I narrowed it down to them. Hopefully that will help me decide where I want to plan to sign during the early signing period."
