Continuing to ride the momentum from their big weekend, Arizona Football has received yet another commitment for 2023, this time it is Texas cornerback, Carter Stoutmire.
Arizona Football had a stellar weekend, as the Wildcats played host to several key recruits from the recruiting class for 2023 and secured two commitments. Well, now the Wildcats are up to three commits from the weekend as a three-star cornerback, Carter Stoutmire has picked the Cats.
Making news via social media on Tuesday afternoon, the standout Prestonwood Christian defensive back from Plano, Texas announced his commitment to the Wildcats after wrapping up his visit in Tucson.
Picking the Wildcats over offers from Colorado, Memphis, Mississippi State, Penn State, and Kansas among others, the three-star defensive back joins the 2023 Arizona recruiting class just days after Lucas Conti and Tylen Gonzalez committed.
Helping to bolster the defensive secondary for Arizona Football, overall, Carter Stoutmire is a solid pick-up for the Wildcats.
Coming in, Carter is the No. 586 overall player in the country based on his 247Sports Composite ranking, and is considered to be the No. 57 overall corner, and the No. 96 player from the deep and the talent-rich state of Texas.
Hailing from Prestonwood Christian (Plano, TX), Stoutmire will come to Tucson with an opportunity to compete for early playing time and should help provide immediate depth in an area of need for the Wildcats.
Heading into his senior season, this is a kid that is poised for a potentially big jump both physically and athletically as he currently stands 5-feet-11-inches and weighs 170 pounds (according to his 247Sports profile). He also has a great opportunity to fill out his frame as well.
Coming from great lineage, Carters’ dad (Omar) was a college standout at Fresno State before playing in the NFL from 1997-2007. And so far, it seems that he is following in his father’s footsteps.
Carter is a two-sport star in Texas, where he also runs track at Prestonwood Christian, competing in both the 100 as well as in the long jump.
He possesses a deceptively long frame, he is very fluid, reads the ball well, and reacts. Carter plays fast and physical, and with the Wildcats needing more depth in the secondary, it is clear why the Wildcats offered him and stayed aggressive in his recruitment. Overall, he should be a great addition to the Cats’ roster!
