Carter still waiting on offer from LSU

Terry Carter is one of Louisiana's top corners for 2007 and is still looking to earn an offer from LSU. Last season, the West Monroe standout garnered all-district and all-state honors playing at his safety position. This season, he will be moving to corner, a position he feels more comfortable at.

"I think I was made to play corner," he said.


LSU offensive line coach Stacey Searels is recruiting Carter and he said that he talked with him and a number of other coaches at LSU's past camp.


"I did very good out there," said Carter. "I think I still could have done better though. The coaches and coaching staff were real nice and they don't lie about anything. They tell you want they want to say, and even though you might not want to hear it, you know it's going to make you a better corner."


When the 5-10, 170-pounder wasn't trying to impress coaches with his blazing 4.4 speed, he took time to explore the campus.


"I liked the campus and they made me feel at home," said Carter. "It was just a real nice place."


So far, Carter has only received offers from Arkansas, Duke and ULM.


What did LSU coaches tell him about an up coming offer?


"They said they are going to keep in touch with me and keep an eye on me," he said. "They said I may get an offer during the season."


Right now, Carter said he is looking for a school that will offer him a good education and make him feel at home. 


He said if he could have his choice of offers from any five schools then LSU, Arkansas, Ole Miss, Alabama and Tennessee would make up his top five.


Out of those five which one would be No. 1 on his list?


"It would be LSU," he said. "I like how they play and they're just such a physical team. I've been a big fan of them since the sixth grade."


Note: Carter has a 2.7 GPA and is awaiting results from his recent ACT test.
