Carter Waiting for Offers

Northside High MLB Jacarde Carter turned heads during the 2007 season, his first year as a starter. Carter has interest from state colleges, but has no offers thus far.

What is there not to like about a 5-11,220-pound athlete that finished the 2007 season with 144 total tackles and was named 5-4A All-District? That is the question that Jacarde Carter cannot answer, but is hoping offers will come his way during the 2008 season. Carter attended several football camps this summer, including the Cajun prospect camp, but has not been offered by any program. What is the latest on Jacarde Carter?

"I went to camps at UL, Southeastern Louisiana and the local Tulane camp at STM in Lafayette, said Carter." "Louisiana Tech has been the most interested program lately; I've heard more from them then any of the other programs."

While the Cajun staff expressed interest in Jacarde Carter at the prospect camp, there has been very little contact from Louisiana since camp.

"The coaches told me after the camp and that they would stay in contact with me during the season, stated Carter." "But I haven't heard from them in some time, so I don't know if there is still some interest."

Cajun fans might recognize the name Carter, Jacarde's father John played along side Brian Mitchell at USL in the 80's. Carter was a member of several good teams during that era under Nelson Stokely.

"Yea, dad played on some good teams with Brian Mitchell during that time at USL, Carter mentioned." "He talks about those teams sometimes and playing with Brian Mitchell."

Academics are not a concern for Jacarde Carter; he has scored a 19 on the ACT and currently has a 3.5 GPA.
