Carter (6-1, 190 lbs.) is a 2023 prospect and already has offers from Arkansas, Pitt and Toledo. In his Twitter bio Carter lists himself as a safety, outside linebacker and running back. Since he tagged WVU DC Vic Koenning and OLB coach Dontae Wright in his tweet it seems WVU is interested in him at linebacker.
