After this upcoming season starting cornerbacks Rufus Brown and Stanford Samuels will use up their playing eligibility at Florida State. In addition to losing those two Bryant McFadden and Leroy Smith will be seniors.

With that entire taking place, it will be essential for the Noles to sign a couple of cover-corners in the class of 2004.

One answer to the cornerback position might be Jacksonville Mandarin's Tony Carter. The 5-foot-10 and 145 pound standout has such an impressive performance on Sunday that he was named the MVP of the Florida Nike camp. His 40-yard dash time (4.37) was the second fastest time at the camp.

In addition to testing well, he was by far the top defender during passing drills. Carter displayed the speed and quickness that will most likely make him on of the top five cornerback prospect in the country for the class of 2004.

TheTerritory caught up with him after the camp to get his thoughts about his performance on Sunday and to find out what's up next for him.
