Deep Creek (Chesapeake, VA) running back Antwain Carey ‘s return this season was cut short after re-injuring his foot…the same foot that kept him sidelined for the first part of the season. He is keeping in good spirits despite the injury.
“Everything happens for a reason,” said Carey, who may be able to play if the Hornets make the playoffs. “I know my team wants me back. I’m just there to support them right now.”
Carey acknowledged his injury may need surgery after the season is over, and feels confident he will return to 100%. When healthy, the 6-0, 205 pound tailback is one of the top players in the state of Virginia.
Schools are confident Antwain will return to 100% as well. He has heard from Virginia Tech, NC State, and UNC recently, and is planning a visit to the Wolfpack on November 22nd.
“NC State wants me to come for the game versus Maryland,” said Carey. “Right now, it’s an unofficial visit but I want to make it an official visit. I’m just waiting for their coach to call me back.”
Carey has made unofficial visits within the past month to Virginia on October 18th and North Carolina this past weekend. On his Virginia visit, he said “the coaches there told me they liked me, but they wanted me to get my grades up.”
He enjoyed the visit to UNC, where he saw the Tar Heels dispatch of Wake Forest 42-34.
“It was a good time,” said Carey of his trip to UNC. “The coaches are good people, and I liked the atmosphere and the players. I talked to them, and I think they might offer soon.”
Virginia Tech, Virginia, North Carolina, and NC State make up Carey’s top four schools right now. In addition to trying to set up an official visit to NC State, he wants to set up an official visit to Virginia Tech soon. UNC and Virginia may receive official visits as well.
These may be his final four schools.
“It’s going to come down to those four I think,” said Carey, who has offers from Virginia Tech and NC State. “I want to make my official visits before I decide. I don’t have any favorites right now.”
Carey is confident he will get his grades in order and that physically, he will be 100% by the time he gets to college.
