His plans for this weekend?
"I'm going to the Florida-Miami game this week," Carter said.
Patrick Carter has offers from the likes of LSU, Georgia Tech, Iowa, Iowa State, Clemson, and Minnesota and he believes he will probably add others as the season goes on.
"Most of the schools said they were going to come and watch me play because they want to see a full game with me," Carter said. "They've seen my highlight tape and they want to see how I play in a real game."
"Florida, Michigan, Tennessee, LSU, and Georgia Tech would be my top five," Carter said. "I haven't set any dates for visits but I have some schools that I plan on visiting. I'm going to get more in-depth with it after the season is over."
Carter does not plan on taking any official visits during the season. Lakewood High School played East Lake last week in a kickoff classic.
"I only played one quarter but I threw for 150 plus yards," Carter said. "I was six-for-six and had three touchdowns."
Next up for Carter and Lakewood is Seminole High School, a team he feels they shouldn't have lost to a year ago. A turnover and a safety were their undoing in that contest.
"They beat us last year 7 to 9 but they didn't score," Carter said. "That's the whole part about it. It was special teams last year that gave the game away. We've been working on that this year. We lost two key games last year by less than two points because of special teams."
Patrick said his brother Tim is doing well in his first season with the New York Giants. Tim has a bruise on his back however and is being held out of this week's game against San Francisco. Tim Carter will be a wide receiver/kick returner for New York.
