Lisa Hartman - Davidson Day

Davidson Day OL Jack Carter likes Wake campus, coaches

Davidson Day (2018) offensive lineman Jack Carter working to get healthy, put on weight and earn offers.

CORNELIUS, N.C. — There’s yet another Wake target playing this season for Davidson Day, 2018 offensive lineman Jack Carter.

The 6-foot-5, 245 pound high school junior sat out Monday’s game against Charlotte Latin, nursing a high ankle sprain and torn tendon.

He’s currently in an aircast. Carter said it should be another couple weeks for him to be healed and back on the field.

“I want to play so bad,” Carter said. “It’s horrible.”

Though he’s been hearing from plenty of coaches, he’s yet to nab his first offer. He’s been hearing most from coaches in the ACC — Duke, North Carolina State, Virginia Tech and Wake.

“Most schools are looking for me to get to 260,” Carter said. “With the injury it actually helps out.”

He’s been to Wake, and really likes what he sees.  

“It’s a nice school. I really like the coaches,” Carter said. “I really like coach (Warren) Belin. He’s hilarious. He’s a nice guy. It’s a nice campus.”

With Cade Carney already performing well for the Deacs, and teammates Chase Monroe and Sam Hartman committed to Wake, Winston-Salem could be an attractive landing spot for Carter.

“All three of my former teammates — that definitely would play a factor,” Carter said.
