WR Carlton Salters has Louisville high on list

6-foot-1, 185-pound Carlton Salters, one of the South's top wide receiver prospects, currently lists Louisville among his trio of favorites. Salters, who caught 37 passes for 898 yards and six touchdowns, recently spoke with Inside The Ville about his interest in the Cardinals.

Carlton Salters of North Florida Christian High in Tallahassee is one of the top wide receiver prospects in the South.

The 6-foot-1, 185-pounder caught 37 passes for 898 and six touchdowns last season, and he's already received plenty of scholarship offers this spring, includes offers from Louisville, Auburn and Maryland - his current top three.

"I have Louisville, Auburn and Maryland at the top of my list right now," Salters said.

Salters, who attended Auburn's camp last weekend, certainly knows what he's looking for in a potential college.

"How well I fit in with the coaching staff, and playing time," said Salters. "I would rather not redshirt my first year, but I'd consider it."

Salters said the combination of
possible early playing time and
coach Petrino's high-octane offense
are the reasons he's interested in

Salters said the combination of early playing time at Louisville, and coach Bobby Petrino's high-octane offense were the primary reasons why the Cardinals presently reside high atop his list of favorites.

"I spoke with both Paul and Bobby Petrino last week," Salters said of the Louisville coaches. "Coach (Bobby) Petrino talked to me about his philosophy of "Feed the Studs," and told me he's losing his top three wide receivers this year, and I could possibly play as a freshman."

Salters credits his relationship with Maryland assistant Al Seamonson, as well as Ralph Friedgen's productive offense, as the two primary factors why the Terrapins are in good shape.

"I have a good relationship with Coach Seamonson, and Coach Friedgen has a good offense," said Salters. "Plus, they're looking for playmakers."

Salters said he'll attend camps at Georgia and Florida State this summer. He also said he doesn't plan to make a college decision until after the start of his senior season.
