Chris Carter

Bridgewater-Raritan (N.J.) High class of 2014 defensive end Chris Carter saw a quartet of schools come by his school, and he spoke with FOXSportsNEXT about each.

Chris Carter saw a few schools trickle through Bridgewater-Raritan (N.J.) High this offseason, and once his highlight tape makes the rounds more exposure will come.

And when schools do get a more in-depth look at the 6-foot-4, 230-pound Carter, one decision that will need to be made is where he fits on the field. Rutgers, Maryland, Temple and Georgia each

"They want to see me in the camps in the spring and the summer," Carter said. "Most of the schools see me as a tight end, a defensive end of a linebacker. I like defense more because I'm more aggressive.

"Tight end is not bad, but I like defense. I like to make big plays a lot and I like the hits."

Carter had three receiving touchdowns and also made 35 tackles, including six sacks.

He said Rutgers assistant coach Joe Rossi visited the school to check in on him.

"I just know they liked my film and they stopped," Carter said. "I talked to him on Facebook a little bit. He likes my film and got some more information on me. They asked me to come camp there."

Maryland is being a big more specific with Carter.

"They said they liked me as a tight end," Carter said. "That's where they say the like me. They like my athleticism. I definitely want to check out the campus and see the coaching staff and the school."

Georgia checked in on Carter for both sides of the ball.

"They liked me as an outside linebacker and also saw me as tight end," Carter said. "I guess they liked me and they said they would keep in touch."

New Temple coach Matt Rhule and his staff are very active in New Jersey, and recently also expressed interest in Carter.

"They said they really liked my film a lot," Carter said. "They said they wanted me to come down to a camp." Recommended Stories
