Carter Stanley

from UConn recently, is that right?

Stanley: Yes sir, a lot of interest from other school has come up since the offer.

RP: Who all are you hearing from?

Stanley: UConn, Penn State, Wake Forest, Miami, Troy, and I haven't talked to coach Morris (TTU) for about a week, FIU and Bowling Green

RP: How much of a relief was it (or not) to get that first offer?

Stanley: Big relief! I know I can play at the D1 level in a power 5 conference but I wasn't getting those looks. So it was a big step when they offered.

RP: Where are you at with UConn? What do you think about the Huskies?

RP: Nice. What about some of the other schools you mentioned? Who do you like and why?

Stanley: I really like Wake Forest, I went there this summer and loved the campus and the coaching staff

RP: Have you visited anywhere else?

Stanley: I went to some FCS schools this summer; Colgate, Furman, Coastal Carolina

RP: Are any of those schools still in play or are you just looking FBS?

Stanley: Colgate is really the only one I still talk to, but I haven't really talked to them recently.

RP: You mentioned Tech and coach Morris earlier. How much did you talk? When did you first hear from him? And what did you talk about?

Stanley: We just exchanged contact info, and I gave him my coaches info, he spoke to my coach about a week and a half ago. He told me to just keep in touch.

RP: Alright. Is there anything I'm missing, anything you'd like to add about your recruitment?

Stanley: Nothing that I can think of, excited to see what will happen.

RP: Me too. Congrats on your success and good luck moving forward. Thanks for your time.
