Five-star big man Robert Carter rises up rankings
CBS Sports reports:
In a class filled with high-quality big men, Robert Carter might have a leg up on everyone in one area: post play.
Simply put, Carter might be the best back-to-the-basket scorer in the country.
The 6-foot-7 power forward from Thomasville (Ga.) made it clear at the NBPA Top 100 camp that he wasn’t backing down from anyone.
“I’m trying to prove that I want to be the best guy, not just one of the best big guys,” Carter said. “I want to show people what I can do.”
While smaller than most of the other five-star big men, Carter has a great jump hook and very good fundamentals around the basket. He is strong enough to bull through defenders and finish at the rim, while also possessing the touch to knock down face-up jumpers from the arc. Carter has tremendous hands and knows how to create space and make himself available on the block.
