Being the first to offer, North Carolina – according to Smith – might have a slight early edge for Carter's February signature.
"He's just keeping every option open," remarked Smith. "I think right now he's favoring Carolina because they've offered him. And because he's been up there a couple times. Maybe once he gets to other places he can compare and contrast and kind of go from there."
Carter plans to have a very busy summer attending camps throughout the Carolinas and Virginia. The 6-foot-3, 205-pound athlete, who owns a legit 4.50-second forty-time, figures to use the camping circuit to gain exposure and help college coaching staffs with the projection of his collegiate position.
"He's so athletic he's got a lot of [position] options," explained Smith. "I think one day he could play quarterback; he's only played quarterback for a year and a half. He's got running back potential. He's also got defensive back potential."
After visiting Chapel Hill, Carter traveled to East Carolina Sunday for their Junior Day.
