Deep Creek (Chesapeake, VA) running back Antwain Carey is down to three schools, and he will make an official visit to each before making his decision. The schools in question are NC State, UNC, and Virginia Tech, and the 6-0, 205 pound running back prospect has already made an official visit to NC State. He visited Raleigh on the weekend of December 12th.
“I liked it,” Carey said of his visit. He was hosted by freshman CB Phillip Holloman, who played for Lake Taylor HS (VA). “It was great. It was the first time I got to really see the campus, and it was pretty nice. They are also going to build new dorms for the players which seem cool. Coach Amato says they would really like to have me on their team.”
Antwain resumes his official visits next year, when he will go to UNC on January 9th-11th and Virginia Tech on January 23rd-25th. Currently, he claims no favorites among the three.

“Virginia Tech is pretty much dominant on both sides of the ball. They have a great defense and a great running back. They’ve got it all.”
Tech is recruiting Antwain to play running back, a position where they already have received two commitments from top prospects. Competition does not matter to Carey, however, as he looks forward to getting healthy and showing whichever school he chooses what he can do on the gridiron.
“I heard Tech got a commitment from [Indian River running back] Branden Ore, but that doesn’t matter,” Carey said. “Once you get to college, there are no favorites. Everyone has to prove themselves. Plus, anywhere you go there will be competition.”
In terms of getting healthy, Antwain will likely have surgery on his injured foot. He hopes to consult with a surgeon at the beginning of the new year, and expects to be 100 percent following the procedure and rehabilitation.
Academically, Carey has earned a qualifying core grade point average however needs a higher score on his SAT. He hopes...
