81 Days To Purdue Football: Sterling Carter

the purpose of JuCo trnasfers, especially if you can get them to enroll in the spring, is to have them as a quick fix for any depth issues. That is where Sterling Carter comes in. We need a tight end, and #81 is expected to fill that void immediately as a JuCo Transfer from Los Angeles Harbor Community College.

Sterling Carter - Jr.

Hometown: Torrence, CA (Los Angeles harbor CC

Tight End

6'5", 240 pounds

2011 Projection: Starter at Tight End

Carter committed to Purdue on December 14th of last year, seeing an immediate need once the season ended. he was able to enroll for the spring semester and go though spring practice. he brings to the position size unparalleled except for Patrick Bade's 6'8" frame.

Carter comes to us from the same junior college that produced Jaycen Taylor. Taylor was one of my favorite recent players because of his tenacity, so I hope Carter brings the same attitude. He had 10 catches for 109 yards this past season. From the research I conducted it looks like Harbor was his second junior college. He was originally at Cerritos College in 2009. Before that, he caught four touchdowns as a senior at Torrence (CA) High, where he also played defense, basketball and volleyball. ut of high school he was a two-star prospect with offers from UCLA and San Jose State. Southern Miss and Tulsa were interested this time around.It looks like he was key to the Harbor offense as they won their conference and he earned all-conference honors.
