Wide receiver Gianni Carter (6-2, 203, 4.5) from Eugene (Ore.) Marist went into the year as one of the top rated players in the Beaver State. He did not disappoint as he had an outstanding senior season.
"My senior season went real good," Carter said. "I led the state in receiving yards until the playoffs. We lost in the quarter finals, but I had over 1,000 yards and 20 touchdowns."
"I learned some leadership qualities, and how to keep my team's head up where we're down," Carter said. "I learned that every high school game in Oregon should be played on turf because of the weather. We had a pretty big mud bowl in our quarter final game. I also learned how to catch the ball in clutch situations."
On the recruiting trail Carter is still is getting dome attention and his first offer could be around the corner.
"I haven't received any new offers recently, but Montana State said that an offer should come in soon," Carter said. "Southern Illinois, Richmond, Fordham, California, Washington and Holy Cross are still showing me interest."
What is Carter looking for when he gets to college?
"I definitely want to play early," Carter said. "I want to be productive when I play, so no dropped passes. I want to be able to win some games and hopefully win a championship."
