Two-star running back Antwain Carey from Chesapeake (Va.) Deep Creek has been sidelined the first two games of the season, rehabilitating from a broken foot, but that has not stopped college recruiters from showing interest. Rated the No. 14 prospect in the Rivals.com Virginia Top 25, Carey has four offers on the table and said one of these schools is the clear leader for his signature.
“Definitely Tech (is in the lead),” he responded. “They have a good tradition and are highly interested in me.” NC State and Virginia are the two other schools he is currently considering, but said he has yet to visit these schools, so he really does not know enough about them to move them to the top of his list. So far the only call Carey has received this month was from Coach Stinespring at Virginia Tech.
Antwain was unable to attend any camps this summer, since he was wearing a cast on his foot. He plans to take an unofficial visit to Virginia on Sept. 26, and although he has yet to set a date, he has an official trip planned to Virginia Tech in December. He has offers from Virginia Tech, Syracuse, NC State, and East Carolina, but has not discussed any other visit dates.
Carey stands 6-foot-0, weighs 205 pounds, and runs the 40-yard dash in 4.4 seconds. Last year he was the named the Southeastern District Offensive Player of the Year and earned second team all-region honors. He maintains a 2.7 GPA and is working to gain the necessary SAT score.
Deep Creek High is 2-0 on the season, but Carey still feels he can help the team on his return. He is rehabbing his foot and said he scheduled to join the team in time for the fourth game.
