Running back Toneil Carter had originally been committed to the University of Georgia. However, after fellow tailbacks Nick Chubb and Sony Michel announced their intentions of returning to school, Carter decided to change his mind. He took to Twitter to say that he’s decommitting from the Bulldogs.
This is Herman’s second commitment after getting Joshua Rowland to join the school last Wednesday. Carter will now join him and seven other commits for Texas’ 2017 season.
According to 247Sports.com, Carter is a four-star recruit, the No. 7 overall running back in the 2017 class, and the No. 21 player in the state of Texas. His National Composite is 137.
Back in April 2015, Carter had visited Houston, where Herman coached for two seasons. He then received an offer from Texas in just one month later when Charlie Strong was still the head man. This eventually led to the 5-foot-10, 197-pound running back taking an unofficial visit to Georgia in March of this year, before eventually committing in July. What’s interesting to note is that he had his official visit in Athens, GA just one month ago, but that was before the announcement of Chubb and Michel coming back for one more season.
