"They (Penn State) actually offered me a long time ago, but I never received it," Carter said. "I told them I never got it so they sent me another written offer. I'll be taking an official visit to Penn State in two weeks."
The Nittany Lions are not alone in their pursuit of Carter. He is also planning trips to four other schools.
"I have Boston College, Penn State, and Virginia scheduled, but I'm not sure of the dates," he said. "I think it's for the Virginia-Florida State game. I'll also visit Minnesota and Syracuse, but I haven't set the dates for those."
The talented 6-foot2, 200 pound, running back recently went over the 3,000 career yards plateau. On the young season he has carried 79 times for 550 yards and nine touchdowns for (2-1) Pottsgrove.
While carter has narrowed down his list to five schools, there is still certain criteria each school will have to meet to land him.
"It will all depend on how comfortable I feel with the coaches, players, and the surroundings," he said.
FightOnState.com will have full reports on each of the scheduled visitors on what is shaping up to be a very important weekend for the Nittany Lions.
