Carriker waiting for more interest

Alexandria (Va.) West Potomac offensive guard Dan Carriker is a sleeper lineman that is starting to draw attention. Who is taking a look at the 6-foot-3, 295-pounder?
"I haven't gotten any kind of scholarships, but a lot of Division I-AA schools are interested," he said. "Randolph-Macon, Towson and James Madison.
"A lot of the schools said it depends on my senior year."
As he waits on colleges, the two-star prospect discussed what he wants in a school.
"Me personally, I'm looking for a college with a good education, if one doesn't have engineering I probably won't accept it, I'm not just going to play football," he said. "I'm also open to moving all over the country. I would love to go to a school in the Northeast, a lot of the schools up there have good engineering."
The offensive guard helped West Potomac to a 6-4 record this past season.
"We missed the playoffs by a point in the power points," he said. "I did really well this year. I've already been named first team all-district and I'm waiting on a first team all-region selection.
"This year was much better than my junior season. I feel like I conditioned myself a lot more in the offseason, I was more athletic and it was easier to move on the line. I was faster and stronger."
