Brett Carter, OLB prospect from Tacoma (Wash.) was one of the invited attendees at WSU's junior day this past weekend. Carter dishes on his visit and his plans for the rest of the spring.
Carter, who preps at Franklin Pierce High School, made his way to the Palouse early Saturday morning from the west side of the state for the junior day activities. By the time he headed back Sunday, Washington State had made quite the impression.
"It was pretty awesome," said Carter. "I really enjoyed myself while I was there."
Carter is no stranger to Pullman. He was in Pullman twice last year for a camp and was also invited to attend one of the games.
"I sat with Coach Breske and he talked with my parents and myself over lunch," said Carter. "We talked about the advancements in the Pac-12 and their new television contract.
"Coach Leach talked to the recruits and the parents over the microphone as we ate," said Carter. "It gave me a better idea of what he is like. I only had a small glimpse during the summer camp, so listening to him speak was good for me. He seems like a genuine guy and he no doubt, will tell you exactly how it is. I like that the most about him. I have had coaches my whole life who don't beat around the bush. That's my kind of coach."
"The biggest sell for me on WSU was that Bill Moos is the AD," said Carter. "He is a legend in my eyes. I really like where the program is headed."
Carter looks to fit in the outside linebacker role in the 3-4 defense. Despite missing his entire junior season with a broken leg, Carter is hearing from Arizona State, Washington, Missouri, SMU, Colorado State and TCU in addition to Wazzu.
"Last year we had a very young team and we were riddled with injuries, including myself," said Carter. "We have close 15 seniors next year who are a big part of our team. We want get to the Tacoma Dome next year. We have high hopes and I have no doubt that we'll have several top performers in the league next year."
After taking in junior days at Washington and Washington State, Carter will also be taking in a junior day at Arizona State. He also has tentative plans to take in a practice at Missouri.
