Info: Kyle Carter is a sleeper prospect in the 2011 class. He has reliable hands and has the elusive ability to gain considerable yardage after a catch. His height allows him to "go up and catch the ball." He has a good frame for college strength and conditioning coaches to build upon. Along with his catching abilities, he is a good blocker. He uses his hands and leverage to be open up lanes for the ball carrier. He admits he needs to work on his strength and speed. Both of which he will be able to obtain with enough hard work and dedication. Kyle has a 3.67 GPA and would like to major in Exercise Science or Sports Medicine. If the NFL doesn’t pan out he would like to use his degree to become a Sports Therapist at the high school, college or professional sports level. He lists Maryland as his dream school. In his quest to pick the right school, the three biggest factors, besides academics, are: atmosphere, facilities and coaches. Kyle compares himself to Tony Gonzalez but idolized Julius Peppers growing up.  He credits his parents as being the biggest influence in his life because according to him “they push me to strive to be my best.” When asked what he brings to the next level he replied with “i feel I can bring a physical presence that can make tough catches and is a big target for any college qb(quarterback)” Kyle feels his greatest achievement is being named All-Conference on offense and defense and winning a State Championship in Basketball in 2009. His favorite highlight so far in his high school football career is the memory of his first varsity TD in a game again Ceasar Rodney. He stated “it was an amazing feeling and I got a lot of support.” Kyle and his teammates are focused on next season. He looks forward to a lot of guys coming back and them being in a position to win the state championship. According to Kyle, “This offseason I organized alot of my teammates n (and) I to have private workouts and got them to come to some camps with me. The 2011 class seems a lot more focused on winning the championship. We will be a top flight team in DE if not the best.” Kyle witnessed two of his former teammates go to D1 schools in 2009. With a strong senior season and hard work on and off the football field he may very well end up following down the path of his former teammates.
