Florida Receiver to Visit This Weekend

<b>Nolan Carroll</b> is currently committed to Maryland, but he will visit Colorado this weekend. Carroll is the nephew of former Buff, <b>Wayne Carroll</b>. He only played one game as a senior with a fractured right tibia, but in that game he had five catches for 85 yards and one touchdown. As a junior, he had an amazing 11 touchdowns off of just 17 receptions. He says that after the trip he will decide between CU and Maryland.

"Those are my final two schools," explained Carroll. "I still consider myself a Maryland commit, but Colorado is appealing to me. I am curious to see how it is out there. My Uncle lives there and played there, and he is originally from Miami."

Carroll is being recruited to CU by wide receivers coach, Ted Gilmore. The Buffs just recently came in on Carroll.

Although his main position is receiver, Carroll could be a corner. "I have played cornerback my whole football career until a couple of years ago. But, I do prefer to be on offense with the ball in my hands.

Carroll is a speed receiver and says that he ran a 4.31 40 time at the Northeast combine held at his school last April.

Despite this claim, his head coach has a different story on his speed from an interview before last season.

THE SCOOP ON THIS FLORIDA KID: After growing some three inches and gaining close to 15 pounds over the past year, he has quickly caught the attention of recruiters and college coaches around the nation.

EVALUATION: "As a wide receiver, he has outstanding hands, runs crisp pass patterns and uses deceptive (4.57) speed to get open and separate himself from the secondary. You can tell that he has worked very hard in the off season with his pass-catching skills. I like to watch him play on the defensive side of the ball where he is very physical and has great anticipation of the play. Again, he has gotten better because of his work in the off season and doesn't repeat mistakes."

THE INSIDE STORY: Was a top 100 performer before the spring began, and because of the major strides he made with his outstanding work ethic, he will only climb the ladder throughout the year ahead.

The BSN will catch up with him after his Boulder visit to see how it went.
