David Carlisle might have had the build up of many of the top wide receiver prospects at this weekend's NFL High School 7on7 in Cleveland, but the Frederick County (MD) Oakdale athlete impressed with his play.
Carlisle, 6-foot-3, 190-pounds, had the size advantage on defensive backs, but also showed good hands and the ability to separate from defenders.
"My junior year went great and I had over 600 yards, with 40 catches and six touchdowns," Carlisle stated. "I have an offer from Williams and Mary right now, but that's my only offer. They were high on me for a while, and they offered me after I went to their camp and did well. I was glad to get that offer because it's a great school."
"I have a 3.4 GPA, and that's something my parents stress all the time," he added. "I'm also hearing from Delaware, Towson State, Maryland and Temple. I think schools aren't aware of me because I play in a pretty new school. I'm trying to get my name out there, and I did go to a lot of camps this summer. I have the size and I was timed at 4.58 in the forty-yard dash this summer."
EVALUATION: Carlisle showed the ability to play at the Division-I level all weekend in Cleveland, and he was one of the top wide receivers at the event. There is a lot to like with this prospect, both athletically and the fact that he is strong in the classroom. Hopefully, Carlisle puts up a strong film as a senior and adds more offers.
