A player who hasn't been getting many recruiting headlines is running back DeLone Carter of Copley (Oh.) High School, but the 2,000-yard rusher is one of the very best backs in the state. He has received a handful of offers and is currently in the process of checking out some colleges.

Running back DeLone Carter (5-10, 200) of Copley (Oh.) High School is one of the top running backs in the Buckeye State this year. Carter had a tremendous season in 2004 (2,556 yards, 28 touchdowns) and is starting to get heavy recruiting interest.

"He has been offered by Wisconsin and Syracuse and a few of the MAC schools," said Copley coach Dan Boarman.

Boarman said Carter has already been to Syracuse and is thinking of making a trip to Wisconsin.

"He went up to Syracuse last week with his parents," Boarman said. "He was really impressed with what he saw up there and they are doing a super job of recruiting him. He is talking about going up to Wisconsin and then stop by some of the MAC schools that have offered on the way back."

Carter also ran track for Copley, competing in the 100, 200, 110 m high hurdles and long jump. Boarman said that academics will not be a problem with Carter.

"Solid student," Boarman said of Carter. "Taking his ACT this week. I am not worried about it. His parents really stress the academics."

Recruiting is starting to heat up for Carter, so when will a decision come?

"I am not sure it will happen but I wouldn’t be surprised at him making his choice and verbaling before the season," Boarman said.

Carter himself told Bucknuts reporter Dave Biddle at the Ohio High School Football Guide photo shoot in late May that he does not know when he will make a decision.

“I’m not sure,” he said. “When that time comes, I’ll just know it I think.”

Boarman said that Carter is the top player he has seen in his time of coaching.

"I have been doing this for about 30 years," Boarman said. "He is probably the best I have ever had.
