OU football: Quinton Carter is OU’s hitman

"We don’t necessarily like him lighting our guys up, but we like him lighting our opponents up,” said secondary coach Bobby Jack Wright, who accidentally got taken out by Carter during a practice early on this spring. "He’s a sharp, smart, physical guy that has a great presence out there.

"If he can stay healthy, he’s shown us all along that he has a chance to really be a good player.”

At Wright’s instruction, Carter, who was a quarterback in high school, has spent this offseason watching a tape of another ex-high school quarterback: former OU free safety Brandon Everage, who punished opposing receivers that dared to come across the middle.

"I relate to him a lot, because we’re about the same size,” said Carter, who is roughly 6-foot-2, 200 pounds. "He was a great hitter.

"Like him, I’m looking forward to this season, being around the ball and making some big hits every game.”
