Carter Makes it Official

It wasn't a big secret that UCLA was high on the list for Birmingham linebacker Donovan Carter. His desire to be a Bruin was strong and it seemed like a commitment to UCLA was all but a sure thing. Well, today he made it official, giving a verbal commitment to coaches Walker and Dorrell.

The 6'2" 225 lb linebacker was an early target for the staff. Donovan earned all-City Section honors and he helped lead Birmingham to the 2006 City Section title. He racked up an impressive 130 tackles along with 5.5 sacks last season. He has seen his stock rise over the last month with offers from Arizona, Washington, and San Diego State.

There were rumors that Carter might announce his commitment along with fellow Birmingham High recruit Milton Knox. We'll have to wait and see if Knox follows suit. I'm really high on Knox and think he could be the next Maurice Drew. Anyways, Carter looks like a solid commitment and another nice pickup for the staff. You can see Carter and Knox (along with other Bruin commits Price and Raymond Carter) in action in this video of Birmingham and Crenshaw from last season.

The Bruins have around 6 more scholarships to give out for this class. Here is the latest recruiting snap shot ( PDF ) that includes Carter.

yup, was hoping knox would commit too, but it appears as if he won't until after his senior year, probably around signing day.

Well, no worries. Knox just committed today. That wraps it up for RB recruiting, I'm sure.
