Five-star wide receiver Randall Carroll (5-11, 175, 4.44) and his Los Angeles (Calif.) Cathedral teammates came very close beating powerhouse Gardena (Calif.) Serra and sent the game into overtime, but a missed PAT saw the Phantoms fall 23-22.
Carroll lived up to his five-star ranking in that game, rushing for 167 yards and scored a touchdown in the losing cause.
On the offensive side of the ball, Carroll has been a jack of all trades. He has rushed for 494 yards and has scored one touchdown. Receiving the pigskin, Carroll has 31 receptions for 564 yards and four more touchdowns. He also starts on the defensive side of the ball as a defensive back.
While Carroll has been a longtime USC commit, he is examining his options and was supposed to take a trip to Florida this past weekend.
"I didn't go on my trip to Florida this weekend," Carroll said. "I will reset the visit after Florida's season is over."
"I will be going to Cal this weekend," Carroll said. "I like what Cal is doing offensively."
"I'm supposed to call my recruiter in Georgia to check on visit the following week," Carroll said. "Georgia is a power team and I like the way they play football.
"I also like the area in Georgia," Carroll said. "I like how the people are laid back and how the people in the south show their hospitality."
"I don't think I'll take an official visit to USC, but they are still very much in the mix."
Carroll and his Cathedral teammates will be playing Pioneer Valley in the opening round of the playoff this Friday.
When Carroll's season ends, he still has one more game on tap as he will represent the West team in the US Army All-American Bowl on January 3rd.
