It's state championship week in Louisiana, and the stars will be out in force. Five-star junior…
Carter Will Soon Know LSU Future
Several weeks ago, sources confirmed that the LSU staff had its eyes on the Rummel standout. Thought to be undersized in the summer, Carter hit a growth spurt and shot up three inches to 6-foot-4, 235 pounds.
That increased size has boosted Carter's stock, and it appears he's in line to receive a LSU offer in the near future. One hasn't come yet, but Carter expects to know soon where he stands with the Tigers' staff.
"I'm going to see about it on Monday," Carter said after his team's 35-14 victory in the Class 5A State Championship.
Carter said he plans to call LSU recruiting coordinator Frank Wilson and discuss his potential future with LSU on Monday. Carter said he has a great relationship with Wilson, stemming from Wilson's friendship with Carter's father.
"My dad grew up with him in Algiers," Carter said. "So they know each other real good, so obviously I've known him [since I was a kid]."
After his performance in the state championship, Carter has likely done enough on the field to earn that scholarship. Carter finished with five catches for 74 yards, including a 12-yard touchdown grab that put Rummel ahead late in the first half.
"I blocked pretty good, and I was physical," Carter said. "I slipped out to the flat a couple times off of play-action and that worked. It felt real good to win, but I played alright. It wasn't my best game. I could have done better."
Though the win marked the final game of his high school career, Carter couldn't have asked for much more after helping lead Rummel to its first state championship in school history.
"It feels good to make history," Carter said. "It's bittersweet because it's my last high school game, and I'm going to carry it over to college…Undefeated. What better way could you go out."
Carter currently holds offers from FIU, ULL, Memphis, Southern Miss and Tulane. He took only one unofficial visit this past season, and that was to LSU for the Tigers' game against Ole Miss.
"It was a good atmosphere," Carter said. "I loved it out there. The crowd, playing in front of a stadium like that. I loved it."
Carter has no other visits scheduled for the coming months, and has no timetable set on when he'd like to make a final decision.
