Catching Curtis Carter: Husker's Nab Another Top Recruit

Josh KleinCorrespondent IOctober 24, 2009

Recruiting news has been slow for the Nebraska Cornhuskers this season. The big recruits had committed earlier in the year and a plethora of three-star recruits have been nabbed by the Husker coaching staff during the season.

Time is getting short in the season though, and that's when most top recruits come in.

Just a few weeks ago, Chase Rome, a four-star recruit that had previously committed to Oklahoma State, switched his commitment to Nebraska.

Now though, the commits should start rolling in for the 2010 Cornhusker class.

Another one already has.

Curtis Carter, an Athlete out of Louisiana, has given a solid verbal to Nebraska within the past few days.

The senior out of Stonewall, Louisiana plays quarterback at North DeSoto High School and has been leading the Griffins up and down the field this year with blazing fast speed.

Carter runs a 4.37 40-yard dash, has a 41 inch verticle and, despite a small frame, benches a maximum of 260 pounds.

The speedster turned down offers from Alabama, LSU, Oklahoma, TCU, Texas Tech, and Missouri to come to Nebraska. His Junior season Carter amassed over 1,000 all purpose yards and 17 TDs (seven on the ground and ten through the air).

Carter marks the fourth four-star recruit to commit to the Cornhuskers this season. Last year, a total of five signed with the Cornhuskers, and it seems that there will be more coming out of the wood-work this season.

Four-star running back Gio Bernard is visiting Nebraska for the Iowa State game this weekend, and it is expected that four-star JUCO Tight End Chase Harper will sign with the Huskers soon.

Another few big time recruits to be aware of: Owamagbe Odighizuwa, a four-star Defensive End out of Portland, Oregon, and Joshua Reese, a four-star Wide Receiver out of Florida.

It seems that the recruiting trail is going hot, and not a moment too soon for the Cornhuskers. 

Because they need play-makers and they need them now.

It seems that Bo Pelini and crew will be bringing them in. So, congratulations on becoming a Husker Curtis Carter, and keep it up coaching staff.

Recruiting may not win games, but it helps solidify programs. 

That's what this coaching staff needs, and it looks like that's what this coaching staff is getting done.
