Florida DB names favorite

Michael Carter teamed up with 5-star Patrick Johnson at Ely last season to form a tremendous pair of shutdown corners. Now a senior, Carter is getting lots of recruiting looks and Scout.com caught up with him for the latest.

"No one has offered but I'm talking to some schools already," Michael Carter said. "Of those, I like Florida, Minnesota, Auburn, and N.C. State."

Carter named his favorite and talked about why they have the edge.

"Minnesota is on top right now," he said. "My cousin, Tyrone Carter, went there and he said it's a nice school and a great place to play for college. I went to a bunch of his games so I've already been up there, know the area, basically know what it's all about already."

Carter talked about some of the things he'll be looking for when it comes time to make a decision later on.

"The academic program will be first," he said. "Without that, there's no football. Then I'll look for a school with a good coaching staff and a good history, good tradition."

Carter, 5-foot-10 and 165 pounds, is coming off an excellent junior season. Teams stayed away from 5-star corner Patrick Johnson last season and Carter took full advantage of that.

"I ended up with 35 tackles, 18 pass breakups, seven interceptions, and I scored on four of those seven," he said. "I made people pay for throwing to my side. I can't wait to see what happens this year."

The talented cornerback prospect talked about what makes him different on the field.

"I got better coverage skills than most corners," he said. "I'm real smart at playing my position. I usually have a pretty good idea of what the receivers and quarterbacks are thinking. I read fast and I'm physical with guys coming off the line."

Inside the classroom, Carter should project as a qualifier sinde he carries a 2.8 GPA and said he scored an 18 on the first ACT.

Carter plans on attending the Scout.com Combine in Miami on April 11.
