recruit804 Fab 30: Jahad Carter – Henrico HS #5
by Andy Hilton, recruit804
The #5 athlete in our Fab 30 countdown is looking forward to a huge senior season. You might say he’s got his groove back, with the return of Florida Gator commit Jalon Jones. In the 2016 season, he partnered with Jones to light up the scoreboard, then the QB transferred to St. Frances (MD). Now, Jones is back.
Heading into the regular season, we recognize the top 30 senior prospects in and around the city of Richmond. Continuing our countdown as the 5th best senior prospect region-wide is Henrico wide receiver Jahad Carter.
#5 Jahad Carter (2019 WR 6-2 190) – Henrico High School
Yep, they’re “getting the band together again”, to borrow a phrase from the move “The Blues Brothers”.
The pairing of Jalon Jones and Jahad Carter is set to do some damage in the Capital District. In his junior season, Carter caught 63 passes for 1,233 yards and 11 touchdowns. Adding to that, on the defensive side of the ball, Carter had 40 tackles and 7 interceptions. You can imagine what he could do, even with defenses keying on him, with Jalon Jones throwing him the ball.
Most programs only have one primary wide receiver to threaten defenses with, but for the Warriors it’s two. Rising senior Rasheed Jackson (2019 WR 5-11 179) polished himself last season by becoming an All-Region prospect and will give opponents another worry. If Jahad Carter isn’t doing damage, you can bet that Jackson will pick up the slack.
Carter made an early verbal commitment to Virginia Tech and will be a Hokie next Fall.
