When you're 6-4, 205 pounds and haul in 85 passes for 1,273 yards and 16 touchdowns during your junior season, colleges tend to take notice. That's certainly been the case for Clayton (NC) standout wide receiver Devin Carter.
Elon was the first to offer but Carter has since landed offers from Michigan State and Minnesota. On Wednesday Carter landed an offer from Colorado State. Interestingly, their wide receiver coach is former Wolfpack standout Alvis Whitted.
NC State has been heavily involved with the the rising senior for months. He reportedly grew up a fan of the Wolfpack and has visited the Pack on several occasions.
He told Pack Pride in a previous interview, "I love State to be honest but I really love all the schools I've visited so far. State's really close to home. State definitely knows their stuff and they keep track of the different scientific stuff with their players and that's impressive. Coach McDonald has been recruiting me. He seems like a good guy, great coach."
On Monday, the first day that the NC State coaches were on the road recruiting for the spring evaluation period, the Pack extended Carter an offer.
Carter told Pack Pride he was excited about the offer and will now let his faith guide him as he tries to figure out his future college home.
"Getting an offer from them was very exciting," said Carter. "I have a good relationship with my position coach there (NC State wide receiver coach George McDonald). I was very excited and blessed to get the offer. I just give God the glory everyday and pray for the best. I plan to go back over to State for a visit. I just need to figure out when."
In addition to his four offers, Carter is also receiving interest from Wake Forest, Duke, Florida, Louisville, UNC and Virginia Tech.
Carter doesn't list any favorites currently and doesn't have a time frame for a decision. He plans to major in business or psychology.
