Interview: Jason Carter

The University of Miami is actively recruiting at least two prospects in the state of Oklahoma this season. I've already posted an interview with tight end Curtis Justus. Now meet Tulsa (Jenks) cornerback Jason Carter.

Carter went to Oklahoma's mini-camp last month and measured at 5-foot-10 and 170 pounds. He ran a 4.50 electronically, which is faster than guys like Leonard Myers and Markese Fitzgerald, and Carter at 170 pounds will gain a lot of strength and become a faster football player as he grows into the college game.

Your current core GPA: I have a 2.5 core, but I took some summer classes and did well, so that will actually be higher when school starts this year.

Your current test score: I haven't taken them yet.

Which schools called you in May: Oklahoma, Miami, Tennessee, Alabama, Notre Dame, Oklahoma State, Missouri, Colorado, Colorado State, Michigan, Nebraska, Kansas State, and UCLA are some of the main ones.

Which schools have sent you a scholarship offer in the mail: Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Missouri, Colorado, Colorado State, and Nebraska so far.

If signing day were tomorrow, what's it looking like: Well, I've already been to OU and Missouri, so my five visits will be to Miami, Tennessee, Alabama, Kansas State, and Notre Dame.

Talk about Miami: I'd love to play for the Hurricanes. I like the way their defense plays. Plus, I enjoy playing in the heat so I would really fit in well in their weather. My recruiting coach, Mark Stoops, is a really good guy and he coaches defensive backs.

Carter is a big time prospect who with a test score and a strong start to his senior season should get a lot more scholarship offers during the season, perhaps including Miami. He says teammate Bryan Pickryl is probably going to either Tennessee or Missouri and Bryan's trying to get Jason to go with him, but Carter says he will do what's best for him. Personally, I think his final decision will come down to Oklahoma and the program he has his best visit with.
