There were two teams on top for North Las Vegas (Nev.) Cheyenne athlete/dual-threat quarterback Quinton Carter but now there is another team joining the party.
His offers include Oregon State, Utah, and Colorado State. Though the Beavers and Utes have held a lead over the other pursuing programs, one team that has not yet offered is in the mix for the 6-foot-2, 185-pound talent.
"UCLA is in my top three with Utah and Oregon State," Carter said. "I just like the program there and after going to their camp I got a really good feel for the school. It seems like a real nice place. I could come in and make a different by taking my skills to next level there."
The No. 7 rated player in the state of Nevada is not about to jump on any offer. Within the next few weeks he will decide where he's going to visit.
"The first visit will probably be to Oregon State," Carter said. "Coach (Greg) Newhouse is really the only coach that has discussed visiting so I'll definitely be heading there. They really seem to like me a lot as a player."
His decision is something that is way off in the distance as of right now.
"It will be late in the season, around playoff time," Carter said. "I want to graduate early so if that happens, I need to have that done so I can find out which schools can get me in there for spring ball."
"Hopefully I make it and get to be a part of that."
A Big Ten school may be liking what they see in Carter according to his coach.
"My coach has a friend up there at Ohio State and after seeing my film, they are trying to get a visit scheduled," Carter said. "So I'm thinking about setting aside a visit to see them as well."
Carter was an all-league selection as a junior.
