Chesapeake (Va.) Deep Creek running back Antwain Carey (6-foot-0, 205 pounds, 4.4-second 40-yard dash) is nearing the end of his high school career and has started to look toward the future. Rated the No. 14 prospect in Virginia by Rivals.com, he has his eyes set on four schools, and will begin setting official visits soon.
Carey attended the Virginia - Florida State game and the North Carolina – Wake Forest game unofficially. He has talked to North Carolina about an official in Dec. or Jan., but hasn’t set a date yet. He is planning a trip to see NC State face Maryland and is trying to make that an official visit, but will make it an unofficial trip if he can’t get the details worked out.
He currently lists UNC, NC State, UVA, and Virginia Tech as his top schools. He has offers from NC State and Virginia Tech, but adds his other favorites have been showing a lot of interest lately and that has played a role in making his choices.
“I am looking for whoever has the most to offer and has the most interest in me,” he commented. “I want good coaches and a school who wants me the most.” He plans to make a decision sometime in late January.
As a junior, he was selected the Southeastern District Offensive Player of the Year after rushing for 1,100 yards. He has been injured most of his senior season, but is now fully recovered and ready to take on new challenges.
The first challenge he must face is getting into college, a feat he is capable of accomplishing if he remains focused in the classroom. He maintains a 2.5 GPA and is waiting on the results from his latest SAT attempt earlier this month.
