Among his group of rising seniors, Hylton (Woodbridge, VA) head coach Lou Sorrentino boasts three potential Division 1A recruits. One of those recruits – 6-4, 200-pound Morgan Carter – has already received offers from two Big East programs.
“I’m starting to get feedback from colleges on all of these guys,” Sorrentino said, referring to his 2008 class. “I’m always hesitant to say which level my guys will fall on, but we have three potential Division 1 guys.
“My top guy is Morgan Carter . One of the things that is a question about him but may be a plus is where to play him. He played defensive back – was a safety/linebacker type – and wide receiver. There is a good chance he could be our quarterback next year. We’ll run more with him at quarterback. He’s real raw, but he’s a great athlete. He’s so versatile, that I’ve moved him around a lot. He may have been underutilized somewhat because of his versatility.”
Carter has received scholarship offers from Connecticut and Rutgers. He has taken in junior days at Maryland and Notre Dame and heads out to Northwestern this weekend. He has attended camps at UVa and Ohio State. He ran a 4.57 in the 40 at UVa’s camp and a 4.58 at Ohio State’s.
As a junior last season, Carter had 10 catches for 128 yards and one touchdown.
“Virginia and Virginia Tech know about him,” Sorrentino said. “We’ll see what happens with his recruitment. His family is very proactive. He has been down to San Antonio for the combine there the past couple years. He is more of a prospect as an athlete than anything else right now, though. I will say he is physical. He likes the contact. He may grow into an outside linebacker. He runs well.
“Everything is real preliminary right now. I think some people want to see how he fits in position-wise. He already has some offers based on raw potential.”
Carter is an excellent student, as he carries a 3.79 grade point average and is taking AP courses.
“His mom is a doctor,” Sorrentino said. “He is the only player I’ve ever coached who went to a pre-doctor camp (laughs).”
