"I liked the campus and the way their camp was run," Carder said about Iowa. "Their campus was great. I loved their athletic facilities and the coaches."
The Kansas native also spoke about the two in-state camps he attended.
"I did pretty well at the Kansas camp," he said. "It went all right. I know they already offered Kale Pick. I don't know if they offered anyone else. It's been a weird situation with them, but it's no big deal."
"K-State was fun. They obviously have two big quarterback commits. I just wanted to go check stuff out. I don't expect much, but it was a good camp."
Carder is seeking his first scholarship offer and feels Iowa and Western Michigan are two schools as possible candidates to extend an offer. He lists the Hawkeyes as a favorite.
Carder is focused on his senior season with a head coach entering his second year.
"This is our year to shine. We have a lot of returning starters. This last year was our coach's first year. I am real satisfied. Hopefully, we can get that state championship. That is the main goal," he said.
"Personal goals and stats in my mind are important, but it makes you talk about yourself too much. I want to put my team in a chance to win."
"If we drive down the field in the fourth quarter and we lose, it's a botched ball game by me even if I have had a really good game. If I don't have a good first three quarters, but we come back and win in the fourth, then I feel like I had a good game. It's not what I do personally, it's what we do as a team is what I count as my goals."
