A broken ankle slowed three-star big man Grayson Carter during his sophomore year and last summer. Now, the junior is pretty much all the way back and the results are showing.

Playing with Dallas Showtyme Elite, the 6-fo0t-9 center from Denton (Texas) Guyer has shown flashes of skill and power that in the past earned him offers from Texas, TCU, SMU, Oklahoma State, LSU, Iowa State, Oklahoma, Houston and Tulsa among others.

"I'm probably 90 or 95 percent now," Carter told "The rest of it is just getting back timing and my ball handling and stuff like that right. Other than that I'm in pretty good shape.

"My biggest upside is that I feel I can do a little bit of everything at my size. I'm pretty solid in most places but I'm never going to be satisfied."

Carter has seen the campuses of several programs recruiting him. He's been to Texas, SMU, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and last week he saw Kansas. He doesn't have any favorites yet but did mention a few schools whose effort has been notable.

"I haven't even gotten that far," said Carter when asked if he had any favorites or programs that would be guaranteed to make his final list. "The people that are recruiting me the most are probably Tulsa, SMU, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State."

When decision time does roll around, Carter's mother will have input on the academic side of things while he focuses on studying rosters.

"Higher academics are the most important thing to my mom," said Carter. "Then basketball wise it's going to be about who they are recruiting, who they have in my class and who they are recruiting."

Because he's just recently gotten fully healthy, Carter wants to take his time and see how things shake out this summer. From there, he'd like to cut things down and figure out his next step.

"I'm hopefully going to make a solid list of seven at the end of the summer," said Carter. "I want to see how my summer goes since I missed so much last summer and my recruiting slowed down. But now it's starting to pick back up and I want to see where it ends up."
