After being a relatively unknown player, Carter really burst onto the scene this past year yielding offers from schools such as North Carolina and Kentucky. The big man is extremely skinny and long, and must hit the weight room the second he steps foot on campus at Kentucky. In the first half, Carter was pushed around by every single player on the floor and was unable to establish solid post position. When the ball was thrown into him though, he was able to catch just about everything due to his long arms and soft hands. In the second half, he got it going a little bit, showing a nice hook shot and knocking down a few jumpers. Defensively, Carter was a force in that he altered just about every opposing players' shot once they got into the lane. While he is not the world's best athlete, he uses his length perfectly and is able to have his presence felt on the defensive end. Jared is definitely a bit of a project, but UK has done a good job at developing big men such as Jamal Magloire and Nazr Mohammed, so we might be talking about Jared Carter and the NBA draft in three or four years.
