Carter eliminates one, picks up another

Want an athlete? Look no further than North Las Vegas (Nev.) Cheyenne quarterback, running back, wide receiver and free safety, Quinton Carter. The do-everything athlete from Las Vegas is looking at an official visit tomorrow and is setting up another.

Quinton Carter did everything on the field this year for North Las Vegas (Nev.) Cheyenne. He played three different positions on offense and also started on defense. The 6-foot-2 and 175 pound Carter and his team fell short of the goal of playing for a state title this year.

"We lost in the second round," Carter said. "I played free safety and really as an athlete on offense. I played a little bit of quarterback, a little of tailback and a little of split end."

"Most teams are recruiting me to play free safety in college. If I had to pick a position to play on offense it would probably be tailback."

Carter has already taken one official visit. He had another set up shortly after, but that official visit fell through.

"I went to Fresno State sometime in October. I was supposed to go to Nebraska, but we cancelled that. I think that I am going to replace them with Oklahoma. Their coach came down this week and they are working on getting me my flight schedule for December 17."

"I actually go to Oregon State tomorrow morning. Maybe UNLV, but that isn't strong. I am not really interested in them. That is just a backup plan. Nebraska is completely eliminated."

Sometimes you hear about a recruit not hearing back from a school or a recruit telling a player that they aren't interested, but in this case it was a mutual situation. "It was kind of a two-way street with them. I wasn't showing enough interest in them so they didn't really show me any interest back."
