Two seniors from The Woodlands, KeSean Carter and Ethan Bonner, recently took part in the NCAA’s new early signing period by officially making their decisions regarding which schools they’d like to attend in a special ceremony that took place at The Woodlands High School.
Carter decided to sign with Texas Tech, while Bonner made the decision to sign with Stanford University.
Carter initially announced his commitment to Texas Tech back in July via his official Twitter page and noted that his decision had been based on whether he’d be able to take part in both track and football. Texas Tech was the only college to offer an option such as that. He also stated that Arkansas had made him a similar offer, but his decision has already been made.
Last spring, Carter became a state champion in the 100-meter dash, as well as on the 4×200 meter relay team. Bonner also became a state champion in the latter as well. In terms of football, Carter obtained 113 receptions for a total of 2,049 yards and 27 touchdowns. Currently, he ranks in third place in Highlander history for receiving yards. Carter also totaled 707 yards and six touchdowns as a returner.
While attending Texas Tech, Carter plans to major in sports management.
When it comes to Bonner, he unfortunately missed his senior year due to a torn ACL injury. When he played football as a defensive back during his junior season, he scored 81 tackles and five interceptions. He says the next step for his rehabilitation is to start running on the track again, and that he hopes to be back on the football field in the fall. Bonner says that during his injury, Stanford continued to stand by him, and that’s something he’s been extremely grateful for. As far as his decision to attend Stanford, Bonner says what played into that the most was the school’s overall academic reputation.
