Potential Defensive End Emerges

Fairly unknown before his appearance at the UCLA Adidas Elite Camp on Saturday, 6-5, 235-pound David Carter from Fontana (Calif.) Kaiser got himself discovered...

David Carter is a 6-5, 235-pound defensive end from Fontana (Calif.) Kaiser who looked good at the recent UCLA Adidas Elite Camp on UCLA's campus.

Carter has a very good frame, with wide shoulders, and moved very well for his size while jumping well in the vertical. He was fairly raw in his football skills in the drills, but is someone that just physically and athleticially makes him a prospect to watch.

Carter said that, up to this point, colleges hadn't recruited him too heavily. "I've heard from Colorado, Washington, Colorado State, UCLA, BYU and California," Carter said. "Just not really that much. Hopefully after the camp that will change."

Carter, who had 47 tackles last season playing defensive end, also plays tight end. "I like both positions but wherever anyone wants to play me that's okay," he said.

Growing up Carter said that UCLA was his probably his favorite. "I probably liked them the most," he said. "But right now I like anyone who likes me. Whoever offers me I'm going to look at them. It doesn't matter where the school is, either. I'll go anywhere."

Carter maintains a 2.7 GPA, but he takes AP classes, so academically he should be in good shape. He hasn't taken the SAT yet but plans too this spring or early summer.
