"I have offers from Mississippi State and Southern Miss. Alabama, Auburn, Vanderbilt, and UAB are all sending me letters just about everyday," said Johnny Carpenter. "I really like Southern Miss. The coaches are very friendly and they have a nice campus. I talked to Coach Kitchens at Mississippi State and I really like him. The campus is beautiful at Mississippi State," added Carpenter.
Five schools are strongly being considered.
"If I had to narrow a list, I would say Mississippi State, Southern
Miss, Alabama, Auburn, and Vanderbilt. I do not have a favorite."
"I grew up an Alabama fan. If I received an offer, I would still have to
think about it. I really love Alabama, but in my eyes right now, all the schools
are equal," said Carpenter.
This summer, Carpenter attended several camps.
"I went to Alabama, Auburn, Mississippi State, Southern Miss, and
This weekend, Carpenter will travel to Starkville.
"I am going to the Mississippi State/Tulane game. Next week, I am going
to Alabama/Ole Miss game. The week after, I am going to Southern Miss/California
game. I know I will probably go to a game every weekend, but those are the first
three games I know I am going to," said Carpenter.
Carpenter will look at a few things before making his decision.
"I want to play at a big school. I want to go to a school that has good
tradition and one with a good looking campus. I am not sure when I will make a
decision. I guess I am waiting to see who else offers me. If I had to choose
today since Alabama has not offered, I would say Southern Miss."
C.J. Herring is another top offensive lineman from Citronelle receiving heavy
interest from several schools.
"Me and C.J. grew up together. We have been playing together
since we were four years old. I hope we can play together, but you can't always
get what you want. It will not be a big deal if we can't play together,"
This Friday, Citronelle will host S. Pauls.
