Two Lead for Carter

"Recently I've just kind of taken a break from recruiting and not thinking about it," Chance Carter said. "But I think things will pick back up on September 1st and we'll see if anyone else comes through with an offer." Carter denies any timeframe for a decision. "I want to make sure I'm comfortable where I am and go where they care about academics too. I also want to spend some time with..."

Chance Carter, the 6-foot-4, 250-pound three-star defensive end helped lead Loyola Academy in Wilmette, Ill., to a 23-9 victory over Evanston. Carter finished his first game as a senior with seven tackles.

Carter, ranked as the No. 54 defensive end in the country by Scout.com, has three scholarship offers but two stand out. He says he now favors Nebraska and Notre Dame and both have offered. He also has an offer from Indiana.

"The people at Nebraska are really nice," he said. "They are great people and very welcoming. They seem to really want me a lot and all the coaches are really easy to get along with.

"I like how they are trying to bring Nebraska back," Carter said. "There's a lot of good buzz going on now. The fans are excited about Nebraska football again."

Carter hasn't scheduled any official visits yet but has been to both Nebraska and Notre Dame already.

"Notre Dame is a great place," he said. "I like the campus and the area a lot. The coaches are great too. They reminded me a lot of the Nebraska coaches and I like how they coach and how they are good teachers."

Earlier this spring, Carter also had an offer from Stanford but he says that the Cardinal have filled their spots.

"I'm still being recruited by other schools too," he said. "I'm hearing a lot from Northwestern and I think they may offer after my first couple of games. California has also been recruiting me a little too.
