East Chicago (Ind.) Central athlete Martayveus Carter has had several good performances at off-season camps. He will look to continue that this summer at college camps.
"We have a couple 7-on-7 camps coming up at Purdue and IU," Carter said. "They both said they would like to see me come to their 7-on-7 camp."
In-state schools Purdue and Indiana are two that have been keeping a close eye on Carter during his junior year. Illinois is another that is starting to show interest.
"The coach from Illinois - Mike Ward - I talk to a little bit and he came to see me twice this year," Carter said. "I want to get to their camp, I just need to find a way there."
The 5-foot-11, 200-pound Carter could play running back or safety at the college level, but has yet to pick up his first scholarship offer. He said most teams are waiting to see how his SAT comes out.
In the meantime, Carter just wrapped up a successful spring track season that saw him record a personal best in the 100 meters of 10.7 and lead his 4x100 relay team deep into the post-season.
"We made it to State, but didn't make the podium," Carter said. "I didn't make it past sectionals [in the 100] because I slipped out of the blocks."
