Carter Whitt, one of the best point guards in the 2021 recruiting class, has committed to Wake Forest.
Steve Forbes picked up his first 2021 commitment back in July: 3-star combo guard Robert McCray. However, the addition of Whitt, a 4-star recruit and top 65 prospect in the class, is even more significant.
Whitt plays his prep basketball for the famed Brewster Academy up in New Hampshire, but he hails from Raleigh, N.C. It’s one thing to land a big-time prospect at a premier position, but one with in-state ties is a nice development for Forbes.
After three seasons with Leesville Road, Whitt announced his decision to transfer to Brewster back in July. Brewster has helped place several players currently active in the NBA, including a few prospects from North Carolina: Devonte Graham and TJ Warren, both products of Raleigh, too. Current Wake Forest forward Isaiah Mucius also attended Brewster. (Utah Jazz star Donovan Mitchell also attended Brewster, where he teamed up with Graham.)

During his junior season, Whitt averaged 22.3 points, 8.3 assists and 9.0 rebounds on a per game, while helping lead the Pride to a 21-8 record and an appearance in the 4-A regional semifinals.
In the end, Wake Forest beat out Nebraska, Boston College and Virginia Tech to land the 6-foot-3, 170-pound point guard.
Carter Whitt is an impressive pickup for Wake Forest. Gives them a skilled PG w/ good decision making who shoild stabilize their backcourt once he arrives.
