UGA will have the chance to make an impression on one of Alabama’s top recruits this weekend.

Shyheim Carter, a 4-star athlete from Kent, La., tweeted on Friday that he was on the way to UGA. The Bulldogs are having their biggest recruiting event of the summer, Dawg Night prospect camp, on Saturday.

Carter is 6-foot, 190-pounder who surprisingly committed to Alabama over LSU around a year ago.
