Carter chooses West Virginia

Ever since last year at this time, when his teammate Patrick (Johnson) Peterson had a national spotlight on him when he chose to attend LSU, Ely defensive back Michael Carter, who once considered the University of Miami, like Peterson, made it official to a national television audience on Saturday in the All-American Bowl in San Antonio.

“I will head to West Virginia,” said Carter, who joins fellow Broward County prospects Eugene Smith and Stedmon Bailey, and Northwestern running back Daquan Hargrett to become Mountaineers.

The 5-11, 160-pound defensive back, who had narrowed his choices down to Florida, Minnesota, Georgia and Miami, takes his talent to the Big East.

Carter joined a number of Floridians on the East team for the annual game, and while Plantation’s Brandon McGee had already cemented his decision to attend the University of Miami, Carter and Palm Beach Central linebacker Jon Bostic, both announced their decisions.

Bostic, a 6-2, 225-pound linebacker gave the Florida Gators his nod over Auburn, Tennessee, Miami, FSU and Clemson.
