Chris “Big Hungry” Carter Non-Committal Prior to Commitment
Chris Carter became a member of the Ohio State 2011 Recruiting Class on March 15th in the midst of a big recruiting push by the Buckeyes. The 6’4” 325 lbs lineman from Cleveland JFK High School is part of a four member offensive line group that will add much needed depth for OSU which losses a number of lineman to graduation next year.

Chris Carter feels that dedication is his best quality as a football player. “My best attributes as a football player is dedication. Spending more time with your team than your family is a lot.” he explained to us when we spoke with him recently.
He plays for JFK High School in Cleveland and goes up against Ted Ginn and the Glenville Tarblooders on a regular schedule. He had a break out game last time they played. ”The highlight of my high school career is the game I played against Cleveland Glenville. I showed out that game.”
Prior to a trip to Ohio State he hadn’t visited any of the programs interested in his scholarship commitment. ”Well I haven’t made any trips yet but I’m due to make a lot of trips this month.” he told us in early March.
But he knew at that time what was important to him. ”In a college, I look for first education, then atmosphere, then location and finally the football program, I really don't have anything I look for in a football program, with the exception of a good student support system.”
With offers from Miami (OH) and NC State, he was wide open. ”I don’t really have a favorite school. I'm trying to make an unbiased choice when I choose.” But the Buckeye offer over the weekend of March 15th was all Carter needed to make up his mind.
