Bolingrook, Ill., High School’s Carl Fisher is a speedy wide receiver that received his first scholarship as a sophomore from the University of Utah. Several schools have been in contact with Fisher and he talks recruiting with Scout.com

Carl Fisher could be the top prospect in the Land of Lincoln in 2005. He joins Demetrius Jones, Chris James and Jamie Cumbie as potential #1 prospects in the Land of Lincoln.

Iowa State has offered me a scholarship,” Carl Fisher said. “I haven’t heard anything from Utah since Coach (Urban) Meyer left for Florida.

“But I guess the good part of that is that I do get regular mail from Florida. My favorites are Michigan, Notre Dame, Northwestern, Iowa, Ohio State, Illinois and Texas.

“This summer I’ll be going to Northwestern for a one day camp. Other than that, my plans are up in the air.”

Fisher will be a four-year varsity starter for the Raiders in 2005. This past season, Carl had 500 yards receiving and 10 touchdowns on a predominantly running team.

What I like about Fisher is that he’s a deep threat and also a threat to take it the distance every time he touches the ball. Carl is very quick in and out of his cuts and he just has that simple ability that can’t be taught.

Fisher is registered and will be competing in the Scout.com regional combine in Champaign, Illinois on April 23rd.

Extra Point - While the University of Iowa has had the most luck recruiting prospects from Bolingbrook, they’ll be getting some competition from Iowa State. Bolingbrook coach John Ivlow was coached at Colorado State by Cyclones running backs coach Todd Fitch. Fisher is big into academics and if Northwestern would offer a scholarship, they would be tough to beat.
