Carter Has Something To Prove

Brother Rice (MI.) safety Chris Carter is out to prove he has what it takes to play at the next level and hopes the Gophers join the mix

Minnesota is looking for playmakers in their secondary to make an impact early and often. Brother Rice (MI.) safety Chris Carter would like to be known as that type of player and is working on it during the camp circuit.

"Camps are going really good," Carter told GopherDigest. "I've preformed very good at every camp I've been to so far and have been told so by coaches and staff at the various camps I have attended. I got to keep working, but I know teams are starting to take notice."

The 5-11, 190-pound ballhawk safety holds offers from Butler, Findlay, Ferris State and Notre Dame College. He is also hearing from most of the Mid-American schools like Northern Illinois, Ball State, Central Michigan, Toledo and Bowling Green, but is hoping to hear from the Gophers.

"No, I haven't heard anything from Minnesota, but I am definitely interested in them," said Carter. "I know Minnesota has pretty good academics and it would give me an opportunity to play on a big stage by them being in Big Ten. I feel like they are a team that if I committed to, then I could invest in and help target other potential recruits. I'd love to help bring a team to an elite status along with other great recruits."

"I've never been to Minnesota, so I do not know too much about them other than the fact they have pretty good academics and they play in the Big Ten. If they offered me, it would mean a lot to me! It would definitely be huge and a humbling experience."

Many have not seen Carter play and are not familiar with his game, but he knows himself that he has what it takes to compete at the next level and what he would bring to table.

"I'm a corner who won't hesitate to play up on a receiver and be aggressive, but I can also play in an off man technique and cover anything that's in front of me," said Carter. "I'm a guy who can play both corner and safety at a high level and make big plays all over the field. I'm very quick, very smart and athletic. I don't only think that I can play in the Big Ten, but I believe I could strive and accomplish a lot in the conference."

"I'm a guy who will bring a high level of play to the program. I am a man of great character and would bring great pride to the program to whatever program I am privilege to play at."
