Athlete Morgan Carter out of Woodbridge (Va.) C.D. Hylton claims two offers at this time. Rivals caught up with the 6-foot-4, 205-pounder's head coach Lou Sorrentino to find out more about his star prospect.
"He's got two early offers from Connecticut and Rutgers already," he said. "I know the ACC schools really like him right now too including Virginia, Virginia Tech and Maryland."
Does Carter have any favorites?
"I know he did like Rutgers when we visited up there and they showed interest back with the offer," he said. "He's also been to Ohio State, Notre Dame and Stanford. I think he's a player that's taking it all in and wide open right now."
There's plenty of interest, but what makes Carter stand out as a prospect?
"He brings a lot to the table," he said. "He's got speed, range, grades, but by no means is he a finished product. He is a hard worker and I think the sky is the limit for him.
"Morgan is a player that could fill many different positions. He played wide receiver and defensive back for us, but might also be a linebacker in college. Honestly, I don't think we've utilized him to the best of his abilities, but he's got the frame and toughness to be a good linebacker or defensive back. On offense, he has terrific size and is someone you can just throw the ball up to, while on defense he's not afraid of contact and will make a tackle."
Last season Carter made the most impact on offense catching 11 passes for 150 yards and two touchdowns.
Off the gridiron, the junior athlete is a model prospect.
"He's a great leader for us and success is linked to him wherever he goes," he said. "I like that he's a winner and also a good student with a 3.7 GPA."
