10 Questions for Nathan Carter.
Tell us about yourself:
After my high school career I received and accepted an offer from the University of Connecticut. I am currently and early enrollee on campus at Connecticut and none of this would’ve been possible without God and my amazing family and supporters!
Who are your most important mentors?
My father and my coaches. My coaches taught me everything about recruiting and what I needed to do in order to be successful. My father was always there for me motivating me every step of my journey and I’m thankful for that.
What were your impressions of the power 50 showcase? How did the showcase, Prospect NYS help you on your recruiting journey?
The prospect 50 showcase was amazing. Because of the times that I posted and how I performed at the showcase it opened up my recruitment. After that showcase I was on lots of colleges radars and I eventually was offered by some of them.
Describe the feeling you had when you learned of your first offer? What was your family reaction?
When I received my first offer I was shocked and excited. I was shocked the way that it happened and I was excited knowing that my family wouldn’t have to pay for me to go to college. My family was so happy for me and they knew it was just the beginning.
How did your high school coaches help you on your recruiting journey?
I had multiple high school coaches throughout my year and every single one of them helped me in some way. From when I was a freshman at Eastridge to when I transferred to Bishop Kearney, all of those coaches helped me get better and pushed me to limits that I didn’t even know I had. I’m thankful for what they’ve done.
What do you plan to study in college?
I am currently studying sports management and business and I plan to learn more about the business side of sports and maybe become and owner or agent one day.
What challenges do you anticipate when transitioning into the college world?
Being enrolled into college early I’ve learned to ask for help when you need it. On and off the field there are people who are willing to help you and you just have to ask for it. I’ve face my challenges early on pretty well so far, as long as you stay focused and not get distracted while in college then you’ll be good.
What is your mindset when you first take the field?
My mindset when taking the field is telling myself that I am the best player on the field. And then not only saying it but also working and going out to perform to prove it. Not to others but to prove it to myself. I want to thank my family, my close friends, all of my coaches, everyone who has helped me and been with me since the beginning it means a lot! God bless!
