Sprayberry High's Carter Hearing From the SEC

David Carter is a talented running back prospect and some big-time programs have taken notice.

David Carter is a speedy, powerful tailback from Sprayberry High in Marietta and the soon-to-be senior has been hearing from several college football programs in the Southeastern Conference.

"David has no offers yet but he has been getting a whole lot of letters," Carter's father, whose name is also David, told GAVSV.com Monday.

"He has been getting mail from Tennessee, Vanderbilt, a little bit from LSU, South Carolina and Mississippi State," the elder Carter added. "He has also received some from Rutgers."

The interest from the handful of schools in the SEC stems from the fact that the 5-foot-10 and 200-pound runner blends size and speed into his impressive frame.

This past season, Carter rushed for over 1,000 rushing yards for the second time in as many years. He also upped his touchdown total in that two-year span to 21. College coaches also covet his athletic ability as Carter is also a member of the Sprayberry High varsity baseball squad.

With so much early attention and the recruiting process likely to continue to heat up, Carter is in the process of lining up some visits.

And according to his father, the first one is already scheduled.

"David has been invited to come visit South Carolina," he said. "We are planning on going there April 5 to attend one of their practices. He is also going to register for the summer camp at Tennessee this summer. He is also going to a one-day camp at Vanderbilt."

Here's a look at Carter in action on the gridiron:
