Carter a Fan of 'Woodson,' to Visit Michigan

Kentwood (La.) 2016 CB Shyheim Carter talks possible Michigan visit and more.

BEAVERTON, Ore. – Shyheim Carter has been committed to Alabama since last July. However, the four-star CB says he plans on taking his official visits this fall – and Michigan will be one of them.

“I have been talking to a few coaches (from Michigan),” Carter said. “We have been staying in contact over Twitter. … It’s a very high interest in (U-M). I want to go visit the place and see how I like it. They told me once I come up there I would love the place, and that could be a possible place I could go.”

Why is Carter, who stars at Kentwood (La.) High, so interested in Michigan? Well, he looks up to a certain former Heisman trophy winner who donned the winged helmet in the late 90s.

“My favorite player played there – Charles Woodson,” Carter said of Woodson, who led Michigan to the national championship in 1997, the same year he won the Heisman. “I just like Charles Woodson.”

Besides his affection for Woodson, Carter also says he has an idea of what he would like to see during his possible visit.

“I want to see how the school is,” Carter said. “What the education is like. How the players are, things I will be around, you know, education –wise, player-wise, and the coaching staff.”

That being said, Carter says getting him to leave his Alabama commitment won’t be easy, adding: “It would take a lot.”
