Georgia Tech transfer Robert Carter has finished his two-day official visit to Maryland.

"He just landed back in Thomasville [in Georgia]. He said it went great," said Winfred Jordan, Carter's former Amateur Athletic Union coach. "He thought the world of Mark Turgeon after getting the chance to sit down with him."

Carter's visit included the standard fare: tours of the campus, facilities and living quarters, as well as some social time with coaches and players.

"He liked it there. He enjoyed himself immensely," Jordan said. "He got a chance to get to know some of the kids who are going to be there and get a feel for what it would be like.

"He's got a former high school and AAU teammate there in Trayvon Reed, so I think that helped him, having someone who would be there going to war with him."

Carter has now visited three schools — St. John's, South Carolina and Maryland — and had spoken about possibly visiting Kansas this week. But that seems unlikely.

"I think this is probably the last visit. Sometimes kids get worn out fast," Jordan said.

And then, of course, there's the million-dollar question: Did Carter commit, or consider committing on the spot?

"One thing I always advise is that they take all of their visits, then sit down, put pen to paper and get a feel for what they're looking at," Jordan said. "So I think he'll do that."
