Mississippi State men’s basketball continues to hit the recruiting trail.
Thursday, the Bulldogs landed a commit from three-star recruit Camryn Carter, the shooting guard from Louisiana, announced on his Twitter page. Travis Branham of 247 Sports was first to report the commit.
Carter is the 127th best prospect nationally for the class of 2021, according to 247 Sports. He picked the Bulldogs over other interested schools Virginia Tech and Ole Miss.
The 6-foot-3, 180-pound guard played at Oak Hill Academy, a well-known boarding school in Virginia that has groomed NBA talent such as Brandon Jennings and Rajon Rondo.
Carter is the third freshman recruit of the 2021 class along with Keyshawn Murphy and Alden Applewhite, both of whom are also three-stars.
With the departure of Deivon Smith and D.J. Stewart testing the NBA draft waters, there could be opportunities to fill substantial minutes in the MSU backcourt. The Bulldogs are still heavily looking at the potential for transfer portal additions as well. Carter will be able to officially sign with MSU at the beginning of the spring signing period on Wednesday.
“First I want to thank God and secondly I want to thank coach Smith and Oak Hill for giving me the opportunity to play basketball at this high level,” Carter wrote in a statement on his Twitter page. “… With that being said I’m 110 percent committed to Mississippi State.”
