Rummel tight end Cethan Carter has verbally committed to the Nebraska Cornhuskers.
Carter made his verbal commitment to Bo Pelini on Thursday night during an in-home visit. Carter also visited Nebraska last weekend.
“Cethan likes the way they use the tight end,” Rummel Coach Jay Roth said . “Their third tight end had more catches than a lot of other college tight ends. They use them a lot. He also liked the coaches. They were nice. He liked the academics.”
Carter had a few more visits planned, but will no longer go on those. The Huskers have to love that. Cornhuskers recruiting coordinator Terry Joseph and tight ends coach Barney Cotton went with Pelini on the visit.
“[Nebraska] just felt like home to me. I loved the atmosphere, the way they plan to use me in their offense, and their whole academic setup.” said Carter after his visit. “I loved it all. My mother loved it just as much as I did, especially their academic program.”
Carter started two years for Rummel and last season they were undefeated and the Class 5A State champions. Nebraska is probably hoping Carter brings some of that championship mentality to the Huskers.
“He’s a very unselfish player.” Roth said. “After his junior year he only had like six catches, but he continued to work hard for his senior year. We were able to get him more touches as a senior, close to 30. I consider him to be a very hard worker and unselfish football player.”
Hard worker and unselfish is a good combination to have in Nebraska, and Bo Pelini is probably glad to lock Carter down before he could go on his next visits.
