Profiles in Terpage is back for 2017. Last week, we focused on running backs; this week, we’re looking at all of Maryland’s receivers.

Carlos Carriere, WR

Height: 6’4
Weight: 170 lbs
Year: Freshman
Hometown: Alpharetta, Georgia
High School: Alpharetta High School

How he got to College Park

Carriere committed to Maryland on May 14, 2016, a week after fellow Georgia wide receiver Sean Nelson. He was a three-star recruit and the No. 108 wide receiver in the nation, according to the 247Sports Composite.

2017 prospectus

At 6’4, Carriere has the height to contribute immediately in the red zone. His speed makes him a threat on screens as well, which would make him a good fit since Maryland’s quarterbacks struggled to vertically stretch the field last season.

Dream season

Carriere gets on the field when the Terps’ reach the red zone against Texas, and his role on offense increases as he becomes more familiar with the playbook. He sets himself up for a big 2018, joining D.J. Moore to form one of the best wide receivers duos in the Big Ten.

Up next

This freshman was classified as an athlete during the recruiting process, but is listed as a receiver now.
