Jalen Carter Recaps Paradise Camp

Jalen Carter Recaps Paradise Camp

Matthew_Suero
Simply put, Jalen Carter is a very large human. The 6’5’’ 285 pound rising junior understands that he does not even need to get any bigger, rather just improve his overall strength.

“I'm huge already. I'm ok with my size. I'd like to be stronger.”

Carter, who is coming off a solid sophomore campaign, is looking to turn it loose in 2018.

“Sophomore year was great. I could have done better but this year I'm bringing the dog out giving 100% in the class and in the field.”

While Carter is a two way athlete in high school, he understands where he needs to play to succeed at the next level and beyond.

“I know I'll be playing both ways but coach is getting me ready for college so more defense.”

Carter is putting a lot more on his shoulders this season, both on and off the field. His goals this season are pretty simple.

“To be a student athlete, play the best I can, and win a state championship.”

One important question when talking to any recruit is who they have the best relationship with at a given school.

“I have the best relationship with (safeties coach Ephraim) Banda, but I took a liking to the DE coach when I was there.”

While Carter was not able to participate during Paradise Camp due to injury, he did still sum up his visit down to Coral Gables.

“I didn't participate. I broke my fibula in spring game. I was released by doc that week to gradually get back on the field. I got there around 7 p.m. (on Friday). I went to pool party, met a lot of coaches, ate...”

For Carter, Saturday was a bigger recruiting day than Friday, since he couldn’t participate in the camp.

“It's was cool. We took a tour, met with coaches, had lunch, played the game, and just chilled out.”

Right now Miami is not recruiting Carter very hard, but does this mean they are out of the game?

“No man. If they recruiting get stronger, it's a possibility, it's close to home.”

Right now, Georgia is recruiting Carter the hardest. Should Carter have a great season on the field this year, Miami will likely come in and make a push.

Matthew, thanks for the interview! Excuse my ignorance what High School does Jalar Carter attend?
 
I thought that the staff was really high on him. They aren't recruiting him hard?
 
Hasn’t it been said he’s one of our top targets, if not top of our board next cycle? And we aren’t recruiting him as hard as Georgia? Is that just recruit speak for bags? Is it a bullshit thing where they’re sending him 80 letters a day or whatever?
 
It does seem odd. But.. This is also .. What? The 6th guy since the opening to say contact has died down? Their board is best kept secret in the state of Florida.
 
Thought this was the guy the coaches said was the best player in the state next cycle? @Stefan Adams

How/why are we not recruiting him hard?
 
D
He's closer to 6'2 6'3. After September 1st when coaches are allowed to "officialy" hit up the 2020 kids he'll feel wanted by Miami. Highest on board.

Pretty much this. Staff has not really been on 2020 kids hard besides when they get them on campus. Even Francois and Denis told me they hadn’t heard from Miami for months and they still committed when they got back on campus

That makes sense. Plus staff still has plenty of work to do on #Surge19.
 
Excellent Player.....will see him and Good this yr, his coach Darlington might very well be the best HS Coach in Fl....but is anti-UM...
