Robert Carter Jr. will visit Maryland on June 2


The Maryland Terrapins men’s basketball program has been very active in the transfer market so far this offseason.

According to InsideMDSports, Georgia Tech transfer Robert Carter Jr. will visit Maryland on June 2, his former AAU coach Winfred Jordan confirmed to the site. It also appears that Carter is considering Kansas, South Carolina, and St. John’s. Carter visited the Johnnies last weekend, but left without a commitment.

Carter averaged 11.4 points-per-game and 8.4 rebounds-per-game during the 2013-2014 season for the Yellow Jackets.

The Terps have also been linked to the likes of Terry Henderson (West Virginia) and Andrew White III (Kansas) in terms of potential transfer targets.

The addition of Carter would be a big one with the departure of forward Charles Mitchell and a lot of uncertainty in the frontcourt. Big men Damonte Dodd, Trayvon Reed, and Michael Cekovsky will all be vying for playing time this coming season.

Carter was a top 30 player in the country coming out of high schooll and has the big-time pedigree that Maryland could use.
