Cougars Pursuing The Woodlands' Carter

The Houston Cougars are clearly looking for speed at the receiver position in the 2018 recruiting class, and The Woodlands (TX) speedster Kesean Carter is a target they have recently offered.

The Houston Cougars are nearing the end of their summer camp series and as is the case with these camps, many of their top targets have been on campus to get coached by their potential position coaches of the future.

One prospect that has truly been at the forefront of the Cougars recruiting circle in the last week has been The Woodlands (TX) receiver Kesean Carter.

Carter picked up an offer from the Cougars less than a week ago, after previously holding offers from Texas Tech, West Virginia, Utah, Bowling Green, UConn and several others.

Carter also took the time to attend Houston’s wide receivers and quarterbacks camp held on Thursday.

“It was a good experience just going out there to compete and work on my receiver drills like footwork and running routes with coach (Kenny) Guiton, the 5-foot-10, 150 pound speedster said. “He has been in contact with me telling me to come out and workout a little bit to get the feel for it at Houston.”

Being at the camp allowed him to work some with Guiding but has left Carter wanting to go back and see more of the program.

“I’m going to make a trip back to Houston soon to see everything better.”

As Carter continues to pick-up interest and offers, he seems primed to begin doing homework on those programs that have extended him scholarship offers.

“I’ve got a few more camps and visits I want to take to see what the options are, he said. “I want to visit Texas Tech and West Virginia. I’m going to take my time and take some visits before I make a decision.”

As for Houston who is one of the newer teams to have offered, they aren’t being shy about the role they see Carter in for them should they land him.

“Houston is telling me they want to get the ball to me and they like my speed,” he said. “They want to throw the ball outside and let me run a little bit.”

The Cougars also have running back Patrick Carr who transferred into the program  and sat last season out as part of the NCAA transfer rules. Carr originally signed and attended Colorado after his own high school career at The Woodlands. Carr is Carter’s cousin.
