Penn State is getting a strong, versatile athlete in Kamonte Carter, a four-star defensive end from Gaithersburg (Md.) High School who checks in at a stout 6-4 and 250 pounds. Carter has played virtually all over the field during a standout prep career, but has settled at defensive end, where he can add depth to a position in need.
Carter has had a unique high school career as a do-it-all force with experience at linebacker, quarterback and wide receiver, as well. That type of athleticism should translate nicely to defensive end, where Carter is blessed with quickness and strength to get into the backfield with a variety of moves. He could be a candidate to see the field early with both starting jobs up for grabs.
Carter joined Dustin Hockensmith and Andrew P. Shay on the Keystone Sports Network this week to talk about his game and go behind the scenes on a big visit weekend at Penn State.
