SEC commit getting Pac-12 interest

K.J. Carta-Samuels remains happily committed to Vanderbilt but he's recognized as one of the top quarterbacks in the West so other programs have not stopped recruiting him.
Following an outstanding performance at the Rivals Camp Series by Under Armour in Los Angeles, Carta-Samuels has picked up an offer from Arizona and is hearing from two other Pac-12 programs.
"I talked to Washington and Oregon but besides that not much else," Carta-Samuels said. "I'm just getting a lot of letters.
"They said they're really close to offering me and they were wondering if I could visit for junior day or go to their camp over the summer."
The 6-foot-3, 210-pound four-star quarterback from San Jose (Calif.) Bellarmine Prep has said numerous times he's most likely sticking with the Commodores unless there is a coaching change.
Carta-Samuels, rated No. 216 in the 2014 class by Rivals.com, still plans to take unofficial visits, though, just to cover his bases because it's no secret Vanderbilt coach James Franklin is a hot commodity.
"I'm going to take some visits but I'm going to be really decisive about the ones I'm really serious about because I'm still with Vanderbilt," Carta-Samuels said. "I do need a backup plan if something happens though.
"There are a limited number of schools I would consider if I branched out but that would only be the case if the coaches left or something."
The four-star has been committed to Vanderbilt since July when he took a visit to the Nashville campus. His brother, Austyn, plays for the Commodores and that could play a factor in his final decision.
