One of the top junior college receivers in the nation is Hayo Carpenter. After a very productive freshman season, there have been multiple inquiries about the speedy receiver. Which schools have been making the most contact?
College of the Canyons in Santa Clarita (Ca.) benefited quite of bit from Hayo Carpenter's skills. The 5-foot-11 wide receiver hauled in 65 receptions last season for 1,188 yards and nine touchdowns. His numbers and another asset, speed, have given him quite a bit of attention. "I think I can stretch the field," said Carpenter. Carpenter can definitely stretch the field with his sub 4.4 forty.
So which schools like that ability to stretch the field? "Arizona, Minnesota, Florida, Nevada and Oregon State are recruiting me the hardest," said Carpenter. Still, his recruitment isn't complete. "I'm pretty much open (to new schools)," he said.
His explosive speed sets him apart from many players at his position and his experience in junior college make him an intriguing prospect. "I would say stretching the field is my biggest strength. I do want to improve more on my blocking techniques," said Carpenter.
Hayo has had an opportunity to visit one school at this time. "I went to San Diego," he said. "I haven't planned any official visits yet," he finished. "I will most likely decide on my school towards the end of the season. I'll make my decision then," he said.
"I'm looking for an opportunity to come in and play," Hayo said.
Carpenter is a five-star prospect according to Scout.com.
