Fontana (Calif.) Kaiser defensive end David Carter has seen his stock sky rocket in the past few months. The talented rush end has changed around several of his official visits and was recently offered a scholarship by a local favorite that could be tough to beat.
Carter, 6-5, 245 pounds has a great frame and good athleticism. He attended a few summer camps that boosted his stock but the main attraction to Carter is his considerable upside because of his size, speed and natural strength.
Carter was originally planning to visit Colorado this weekend but canceled it. He also canceled visits with Arizona and Boise State.
"I decided I just wanted to be home for Thanksgiving," Carter said. "Arizona was going to be next weekend but we're still in the playoffs and have a CIF semi-final game this Friday. Boise State was going to be the following weekend on the 9th but UCLA just offered me a few days ago and I'm going to visit there on Dec. 9) now.
"UCLA was just waiting on my SAT score to come in and they just got the results and offered me the next day. Growing up, I never really had a favorite team but I've liked UCLA for awhile and have gone to a lot of games this season. Coach Schneider and Coach Moore are recruiting me and I like both a lot.
"The other school I'm mainly looking at is Fresno State. I'm going to visit there the following weekend (Dec. 16) and there is a good chance I'll make my decision after that trip. Boise State is still in the mix and they're coming in for a home visit (Dec. 7). UCLA and Fresno State are coming over for home visits as well but I don't remember the exact dates."
On the season, Carter has 62 tackles, four sacks and blocked one field goal.
