In-state QB still high on Vols, talks recruitment during dead period

Matt Ray

Tevin Carter is a 2022 quarterback from Memphis, and he is a name to know in the class and at the position. He is staying the course during the recruiting dead period and trying to focus on himself while improving his craft.

Carter said on the current state of events, "This dead period I’m just continuing to workout not worried much with recruitment."

Carter has continued to pick up offers, and there could be more as teams see the product he puts on the field as a Junior.

Carter visited Tennessee last season, and he told VR2 after that visit, "The way the coaches treated my guys and me like family it almost seemed like we were Tennessee players.. The coaches were telling me to keep developing my game and stay humble through the process."

Things have changed a bit with Tennessee since David Johnson departed, and this recruiting dead period put a big dent in recruitments across the country.

Carter said, "in regards to Tennessee, I don’t even know who recruits my area anymore since coach Yac left, so once I get back up there, I will see."

Carter said on what appeals about Tennessee, "coach (Chris) Weinke and the OL is definitely what appeals to me most, and then the offense I could learn it and run with it just like Peyton Manning."

During this break, Carter is spending time perfecting his craft and focusing on improving some of his weaknesses. He said, " I’m focusing on pocket movement, reading the field, and moving faster in the game."

Carter is not rated by the 247 Sports ranking service but should fall inside the top 500 prospects nationally when the full ranking service comes out.
