WR Adds His Name to the Mix

As the University of Miami continues its search for quality wide receiver prospects, a new name has surfaced. Carlton Salters of Tallahassee (Fla.) North Florida Christian is now being recruited by the Hurricanes.

"Miami is in it now," Salters said. "I've talked to them twice but they haven't offered me yet. I'm waiting to talk to them again real soon. I've had an in-person conversation with them so I think they're pretty interested."

Asked what an offer from the Hurricanes might mean, Salters had an interesting response.

"What else could you say," he said. "Everything you need is right there. It's Miami."

Carlton Salters, 6-feet and 180 pounds, has already taken two official visits and plans on taking three more in January.

"I went to Maryland and Arkansas so far," he said. "Maryland was a nice town and city. Plus, I can get a good internship with my major (history) and get a quick job after graduation. That's what I like there. Arkansas is a good place. They got a new offensive coordinator but I havent spoken to him yet. I'm looking at LSU, Alabama, Wake Forest, and Miami (for the last three visits). They all have (offered) except for Miami."

Salters, who began playing football as a freshman, has been one of the most productive receivers in the entire state over the last three seasons. He was asked to describe his style.

"I run real good routes, I can go up and catch anything, and I don't drop many balls," he said. "I feel like I'm one of the best out there."

Salters, a full academic qualifier who also plays basketball and baseball, talked about the factors that will be important in making his final choice.

"My relationship with the players and coaches will be real important," he said. "And basically, how well I fit into the environment. I'm looking forward to these other visits."
