Linebacker Donovan Carter from Lake Balboa (Calif.) Birmingham landed his third official offer this weekend and he could even have a fourth. Carter also took an unofficial visit this weekend.
Carter picked up a third official offer from Arizona on Sunday (June 3rd) and there have been rumors that Oregon could be on the cusp of offering. The Ducks have been recruiting Carter hard this spring and it appears to be only a matter of time before an offer is made.
Carter and Knox paid a local school a recent visit.
"Milton Knox and I went down to UCLA on Friday and that went really well," Carter said. "I got the chance to talk to their linebacker coach ( Chuck Bullough) and he told me what position I could play.
"UCLA wants me to play the will position," Carter said. "I also got to talk to Coach DeWayne Walker and most of the defensive staff.
"Coach Eric Scott was there and the offensive coordinator (Jay Norvell) was also there," Carter said. "Like I said it went well.
"I was a little tempted to commit, but I needed to talk it over with my family," Carter said. "My Dad wants me to finish my junior year and put school first. He wants me to concentrate on my schooling.
"UCLA, Arizona and if Oregon would offer me they would be my leaders," Carter said. "I want to learn more about Arizona. I saw them beat Cal last season.
"I'm going to make my decision in the summer," Carter said. "I could have it done sooner, but I should have it done by August."
Carter earned first-team all-city, first-team all-city and first-team all-league as a junior after accounting for 128 tackles, 5.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery and one pick that he returned 60-plus yards for a touchdown in the quarter-final against Los Angeles (Calif.) Locke.
