Jamal Carter to Miami: 4-Star Is Big Boost for Canes and Tough Loss for LSU, FSU
Jamal Carter was a must-have for the Miami Hurricanes.
Roughly one week following the dismissal of safety-starter Ray-Ray Armstrong, the Canes desperately needed this good news.
With the commit, the Hurricanes turned in an incredible week in recruiting. The 4-star safety chose to stay closer at home in Miami over LSU and Florida State Thursday afternoon (ESPN). This comes just a few days after the Hurricanes picked up a verbal from 4-star cornerback Artie Burns.
When it came down to his decision, Rivals reported that Carter said in the press conference announcing his decision that he "loves Miami."
"Miami, they showed me the most love," Carter said. "They talk to me, send me stuff, invite me to come down there. That's the program I know the most about."
So with the addition, Miami is riding high with two solid additions to their secondary, while both Florida State and LSU miss an opportunity at gaining a valuable playmaker.
Miami now has 11 commits, and five of them are 4-stars according to 247 Sports. But this is exactly what the Canes needed.
Armstrong's dismissal and the fact that this is Vaughn Telemaque's last season with Canes make Carter a much-needed addition. This is an addition that both LSU and Florida State will regret not having.
Florida State is missing out on a 4-star safety, which is something that they need and don't have in this year's 2013 recruiting class. Should starting safety Lamarcus Joyner turn pro after the 2012 season, the Seminoles will need more depth at the safety position.
Well, they won't be getting it from Carter.
Once Craig Loston graduates and Eric Reid most likely turns pro, the Tigers will have some holes to fill at the safety position. These are holes that can't be filled by their one verbal commit, Cutrer, alone.
Anytime you miss out on a 4-star athlete like Carter, it's going to hurt. But as far as future depth goes in the Tigers and Seminoles case, it hurts equally as bad.
