Nebraska added another tight end to its recruiting class, gaining a commitment on Thursday from Cethan Carter.
The product of Archbishop Rummel in Louisiana made his commitment known on Twitter, proclaiming: “Finally committed to Nebraska baby! Thank God! #GBR.”
The 6-foot-4, 235-pound Carter played both fullback and tight end as a senior, but has been viewed mostly as a tight end by college coaches.
He had 25 catches for more than 400 yards and six touchdowns this past season.
Carter chose Nebraska over a gray shirt offer from LSU, among other options.
The recruit visited Lincoln this past weekend, coming away impressed by his visit with Bo Pelini and his assistants.
“The coaches talked about how they're going to use me," Carter told FOX Sports NEXT after the visit. "It's not just as a blocking tight end. They're going to flex me out at receiver and want to get the ball in my hands."
Carter joins Greg Hart (Dayton, Ohio) as the other tight end in the class, and puts Nebraska at 21 pledges.
With Kyler Reed and Ben Cotton departing, Husker coaches have been pursuing the addition of another tight end in this class, making a run at JUCO tight end Beau Sandland before he picked Miami.
But Nebraska recruiting coordinator also said it was not a position where the Huskers absolutely had to land another recruit if the right option wasn’t available.
"That's not one where we say, 'Oh, my gosh, we don't have another tight end other than the one we have committed, what are we going to do?" Els said. "That's one of those positions where, if we get another one, great. If we don't, we're going to be just fine."
As it stands now, Carter and Hart would join a group of tight ends that includes Jake Long, Sam Cotton, David Sutton and Trey Foster.
