Vegas athlete picking up steam

With the population growth, the Silver State of Nevada has increased its number of D-I recruits. Las Vegas specifically has seen a rise of prospects. The subject of the following profile has attracted several D-I schools to the desert oasis and he could be zeroing in on his first offer.
Quarterback/free safety Quentin Carter (6-2, 185, 4.45) from North Las Vegas (Nev.) Cheyenne is a player to watch.
Carter is about winning and one of the main reasons his team made it to the state championship game a year ago. When asked about if he received honors, Carter quickly let his feelings about the subject.
"I really don't know," Carter said. "I don't pay attention to awards. I just go out and play."
Play indeed.
While lining up primarily at quarterback as a junior, Carter made plays. He passed for 800 yards and 12 touchdowns while rushing for 500 more yards and 12 more touchdowns. For his career at Cheyenne, Carter has a total of 58 career score rushing and passing. He was selected all-league for his performance in 2005.
Because of Carter some of the west's best schools have been on the Cheyenne campus.
USC, Cal, Stanford, Oregon, Oregon State, Washington, Washington State, Utah State, Colorado State and UNLV are just some of the schools that have visited Cheyenne high.
Colorado State, Oregon and Washington State have called. Colorado State is on the verge of making Carter an offer.
There is a good chance that Carter will take in camps at Colorado State, Cal and Oregon. He will also take in the EA Elite 11 camp.
The scouting report on Carter is he's a hard worker and very dedicated to the game. He has outstanding leadership qualities. Though Carter plays quarterback on the high school level, he more than likely projects as a free safety on the collegiate level.
What is Carter looking for in a school?
"I would like to play for a school that has a prestigious football program and has outstanding academics," Carter said. "That is why I really like Cal right now."
