Running back Brent Carter out of Pottstown (Pa.) Pottsgrove picked up four more offers over the last few weeks from the Big East and Big Ten.
The 6-foot-3, 190-pounder with an impressive 4.55-second 40-yard dash time picked up offers from Louisville, Wisconsin, West Virginia and Syracuse.
"I know Louisville is a great football school and their academics are good too. I haven't seen the school yet, but I enjoyed talking to the coaches and I liked receiving that offer from them. The coach told me that they recruit a lot of big backs and he liked that I'm pretty big," he said. "Wisconsin is a big school and they have a good team and they also use big backs. That's a fine program and over the past ten years they have had a lot of running backs go to the NFL. I really enjoy hearing that, although it is pretty far away from home.
"West Virginia is recruiting me as an outside linebacker. I really have to see how the players are and how the team is. I can play wherever the coach needs me, but my heart is at running back. It doesn't really take away from West Virginia though. Syracuse is recruiting me really hard right now. I got to talk to their head coach on the phone. The academics really stuck out from talking to him and we had a really good conversation."
Besides offers, Carter has received heavy interest from schools including Penn State, Michigan State, Purdue and Iowa.
A handful of schools impressed the running back over the evaluation period.
"Rutgers and North Carolina brought in their head coaches and Miami stopped by the school too," he said. "I just sent out film to Miami a couple weeks ago. I'm still waiting to hear back from them."
This summer Carter plans to take unofficial visits to Boston College, Syracuse, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Iowa and Wisconsin.
"I have questions lined up for them when I go," he said. "I'm mainly looking to see how the coaches and players are. That's what will stick out about a program."
Currently, Carter is favoring the schools that have offered, but he also claims that he doesn't exactly have a top ten yet even though he's considering making a decision in the next month.
"I'm probably looking at making my decision in late June or mid-July.
"That's the best time for me because school and football are coming up," he said. "So summer is when I have free time."
Carter ran for 1,200 yards and 17 touchdowns in just seven games. He went on to be named the Mini-Maxwell award winner and first team Pac-10.
Carter carries an impressive 3.2 GPA.
