The Michigan State Spartans have landed a verbal commitment from 2022 three-star safety/linebacker Quavian Carter.
Interestingly, Carter took his official visit to Michigan State this weekend, which means head coach Mel Tucker and the rest of the MSU staff were able to get Carter to commit on the spot while he was in East Lansing.
Carter, listed at 6-foot-4, 200 pounds, hails from Lee County High School in Leesburg, Georgia. Carter is listed as a safety by most recruiting services, but is expected to play linebacker for Michigan State.
He held several offers from major programs such as Clemson, Florida State, Mississippi, Penn State, Michigan, Tennessee, Louisville, Georgia Tech, Kansas State, Cincinnati, Boston College and others. Carter is ranked as the No. 39 safety, No. 62 player in Georgia and No. 644 prospect nationally in the 2022 class, according to 247Sports’ Composite rankings.
This makes six commitments now as things currently stand for the Spartans’ 2022 class. Carter joins three-star safety Malik Spencer, three-star offensive guard Gavin Broscious, three-star athlete/wide receiver Tyrell Henry, three-star offensive guard Kristian Phillips and three-star offensive tackle Ashton Lepo.
Carter is the first player to commit to Michigan State since on-campus recruiting opened back up in early June, and the staff has been busy hosting plenty of official visits, unofficial visits and camps. He is also the first player to commit to MSU since Spencer on March 22. Carter is the third committed prospect from the state of Georgia, along with Spencer and Phillips.
