L.A. Harbor tight end has an offer

While he isn't putting up huge numbers, L.A. Harbor TE Sterling Carter (6-5, 240) has enough raw skills to attract an offer from a Conference USA school and has some other programs eying his skills. JCFootball.com caught up with the gifted prospect recently and he updated us on things...

Carter prepped at Torrance (Ca.) High School, but didn't get much in the way of recruiting attention, so he decided to head to Cerritos as a freshman before transferring to Harbor last spring.

"Harbor just seemed like a better fit for me," Carter told JCFootball.com. "I've felt comfortable here and it's been a good experience for me."

This fall, Carter only has 4 receptions for 39 yards, but he's been a big reason RB John White has been able to rush for over 1,000 yards this season with his outstanding blocking skills.

"We use him a lot as a blocker and he really worked on that this past summer," Seahawks head coach Brett Peabody told JCFootball.com early this season.

"That's something I take pride in," Carter admitted. "I'm athletic and I can catch the ball just fine, but I wasn't as good of a blocker, so that was something I worked on all summer -- just my technique and my 'down' blocking from the tight ends spot and it's really paid off in how I've played this year."

Earlier this season Tulsa offered the talented prospect and he said schools like Arizona and Southern Miss have also been in contact.

"I only have the one offer right now, but it's still pretty early -- I have time," Carter said.

He hasn't set up a visit to this point, but plans to after Harbor's season ends.

As a full-qualifier, Carter can leave at any time, but plans to sign in December and he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
