Delaware lands Jackson Memorial Forward Eric Carter

Eric Carter shown above in the post, should be a matchup problem when he comes to the CAA in the 2014 season.

The Jackson Memorial senior made his decision on Friday, picking Delaware over a trio of other CAA schools in Drexel, Towson and Northeastern. At 6’8, 220 lbs, Carter is Delaware’s third commitment of the 2014 and second forward to commit in the last few days, joining Virginia Episcopal big man Skye Johnson, who chose the Blue Hens on Sep. 23. Also committed to the school for next year is James M. Bennett in Maryland, point guard Kory Holden, the first to give his verbal commitment on Sep. 7. Out of Jackson, New Jersey, Carter was a second-team All-Shore selection as a junior after being the leading scorer on a Jaguars team that finished 22-6. He projects as a stretch-four, point forward-type of player.


What he brings to the CAA is a tough, versatile forward who’s got a solid game on both ends of the court. He’s a very talented offensive player, with great post moves and the ability to pop out to about 15 feet to knock down a jumper; this season, he’s also expected to handle some ball-handling duties for his high school team. Carter had his list cut to five schools: Fairfield, Delaware, Towson, Monmouth and Drexel. Delaware came out the winner, and landed a very skilled big men for the future of their program.
