Breakdown: When one door shuts this close to national signing day, another one usually opens. Often, it opens quite fast. Maryland had kept tabs on Carter since last year, he said, but it took a decommitment from safety Jordan Noil for the Terps to move on the Westlake prospect. "They called my dad [Saturday] and said they wanted to meet up, so we did. And then they offered," he said. Carter committed right on the spot, no questions asked. He toured the campus Saturday, sitting down with the coaching staff, which wants him to play free safety. “They said they liked my footwork, my athletic ability, my length and my hips," Carter said. "They said they liked my hardworking ability.” With things happening so quickly, Carter acknowledged that he hardly had time to process everything. But that didn't make his whirlwind weekend any less special.
