One of the busiest young athletes lately has been Quentin Carter (6-2, 175, 4.45) from North Las Vegas (Nev.) Cheyenne. He has been on the camp circuit and may still hit the road and participate in a couple more camps before the summer is over.
Since June, Carter camped at Cal, UCLA, the NIKE Camp in Eugene and the EA 11 Camp held in Las Vegas. At every stop, Carter has impressed.
While attending UCLA's camp Carter caught the attention of former LSU and NFL player Craig Raymond and he invited Carter to partake in LSU's camp in late July.

That's not all for the ever busy Carter, he may also find time to attend Colorado State's camp before it is all said and done.
Obviously Carter has been putting in overtime this season in preparation for his senior season.
Carter is old-school tough. He has been participating at all the camps with a stress fracture on his right foot. He's such a competitor that he plays through pain.
How does Carter like the schools he has camped at lately?
"The Cal camp went nice," Carter said. "I knew my recruiter from Cal because he came by the school this past spring."
"When I showed up for Cal's camp I was treated very well," Carter said. "The coaches all greeted me."
"UCLA is a real nice school," Carter said. "I loved the campus and they have good facilities. I was impressed by the academic opportunities that UCLA has for the athlete."
"The EA 11 camp was good," Carter said. "I learned a lot of new drills."
"Since going to the camps I have learned a lot of new techniques," Carter said. "At Cal they played me at wide receiver and I learned a lot of route running and footwork."
"At UCLA I played cornerback and safety," Carter said. "I learned a lot of man-on-man technique."
"At the NIKE Camp in Eugene," Carter said. "I learned how to get a faster 40-time."
"I'm going to narrow things down at the beginning the season," Carter said. "I would ideally like to narrow it down to three schools and visit those three schools."
Carter currently has three offers on the table from Utah, Colorado State and Oregon State. He is getting seriously recruited by Cal, Oregon, Washington, Washington State and UCLA.
