The now redshirt freshman tight end had his eye on Bill O'Brien, who at the time was offensive coordinator of the New England Patriots. Why? Because O'Brien was known for his creative use of tight ends. In the end, Penn State hired O'Brien. "Once we got him, I was excited," Carter said. "I knew I had some work to do, because I was down on the depth chart at the time. But I knew once we had Coach O'Brien it would be the perfect offense for me, so I was excited." We caught up with Carter recently to get the lowdown on his productive off-season (he moved to first team at one of the tight end positions), O'Brien and much more. Get to know him in the video above. Issues with the video above? Click the link below.
