No matter what year it is, Dallas (Texas) Carter High School ushers out plenty of talent and this season it's no different. While running back Michael Hicks and defensive back Jeremy Watts wait on scholarship offers, teammates Jeremiah Hatch and sleeper Isaac Madison are on the board with theirs.
Hatch, a 6-foot-3, 301-pound offensive center, has been the most heavily reported prospect in this year's Carter class. However, the 5-foot-10, 180-pound Madison is a speedster that is ready to get going as a senior after being injured last year.
"We were just in our first four games, and we were playing Garland when I got hurt," Madison said. "The receiver, Malcolm Williams, ran a wheel route and jumped up for the pass and when he came down, he landed on me and it broke my arm."

Madison was unable to collect any honors since he didn't make it back for district play. However, he got out and about this summer to camps and that ushered in his first scholarship offer.
"I went to the Oklahoma State camp and they offered me after that," Madison said. "It's a pretty good school and it's in the Big 12. I'm considering going there."
Madison also went to Rice for a camp, performed well, and is waiting to hear the status of their interest soon.
"I'm not looking to commit anywhere early," he said. "My coach told me to just wait because there will be more offers this fall for sure. I'll probably have my mind made up sometime before December.
His teammate, Hicks, says that Madison is "real fast." Madison says he can do more than just play cornerback.
"I'm an athlete really," he said. "As far as being a corner, I shut down one side of the field. I lock things down out there."
