He’s already received three scholarship offers to play quarterback at the next level, but Sharpston High School quarterback Sam Carter doesn’t expect to make a decision on his gridiron destination anytime soon.
“I’ve received offers from Oklahoma State, Houston and TCU,” he said. “But I will probably take my decision down to end, all the way to next year’s signing day. My parents and I will sit down and make a decision, but I’m not going to rush into anything.”
Carter said the University has Texas is also recruiting him, but as an athlete and not a signal caller.
Carter, a 6’1 205-pound dual-threat quarterback, reported a forty-yard dash time of 4.57 seconds and a bench press of 320 pounds. In 2008, as a junior, Carter rushed for 1,021 yards and nine touchdowns while passing for 1,759 yards and 19 touchdowns.
However, Carter threw 11 interceptions last year and he said that he needs to work on his decision making next season.
“I need to be better at knowing when to throw the ball and when to attack the defense,” he told BigPurpleNation.
So does Carter consider TCU as a possible destination for his services?
“Whatever college benefits my family and me and the things that I am trying to succeed at as I get older could be the college,” he said.
Family and academics are very important to Carter and he said he would like to major in business once he gets to college.
