’24 multi-phase prospect is the ‘King of the Aces’
Hard to say where this particular Carrico figures to play in college. It is not very hard, however, to forecast he will play in college. Carrico was a double-duty threat for the Aces, 9-4, Regional Runner-up squad we watched win 9-games a year ago. He, like his brother, may be a little shorter than some schools would like, for where they figure to align him, but the on-field production is certainly there.HB Lyon, Scouting Division, KPGFootball
You may remember our saying just this past Tuesday that the Carrico brothers can flat out ball. Just a few days later, we are not backing off that assessment.
His given name is “William.” There have been plenty of William’s to sit thrones across the entire breadth of Europe. William the Conquerer, the great Norman invader, who ruled an expansive empire in the 11th-Century A.D. comes readily to mind.
Of course there is a really famous Tut, a pharaoh named Tutankhamun, who ruled over Egypt in the 13th-Century B.C. This guy spelled his name, Tut, not Tutt, like our William the Conqueror.
Regardless, we believe the point has been fairly made. William Carrico, or even Tutt Carrico, was aptly named however the reference was determined.
Carrico’s offensive résumé is impressive standing alone. King Tutt led the team in receptions (47), yards gained receiving (774), TD’s receiving (14), and scoring (130-points). Carrico was third in rushing yards (344) and rushing TD’s (4).
Carrico had 1,118-all purpose yards and accounted for 21-TD’s. That is tremendous production.
On defense, much like his brother Vince, the production was off the charts. Carrico had 131-tackles, 8.5 TFL’s, 1-sack, 3-FF’s, 3-FR’s, 5-INT’s, 137 IRNY’s, and 2-pick-sixes. Carrico was second (to Vince) in tackles, among the leaders in TFL’s and sacks, while being first on the team in FF’s, FR’s, INT’s, PBU’s, IRNY’s, and pick-sixes.
If you don’t know what any of the above abbreviations mean, quit reading us. This is a football publication for football people.
We shouldn’t have to explain to you what an “FF” or an “IRNY” is. We used to provide those explanations, when we first came online. That was 2,500 articles ago. We can’t spoon feed you forever.
Carrico looks to have some serious suitors monitoring his every move. The hometown Kentucky Wesleyan University Panthers are omnipresent.
Lindsey Wilson is on him. Marian University and its new DC, Justin Robinson is lurking. We also shouldn’t discount the University of Indianapolis and its greyhounds as Indy is a perennial conference and national power at its level of play.
Now Carrico is a 6’0,” 200 pounder with a 4.0 GPA and a 1300 on his SAT’s. Scores like that will bring the Ivy’s and the Near-Ivy’s calling.
There is a certain prestigious small college Near-Ivy from Central Kentucky looking to make a pitch, and probably hoping to land both Carricos.
Regardless of where Tutt may land, it is clear he performs like football playing royalty. This probably means “King Tutt” is a name for William Carrico which has an excellent chance of staying relevant for many years on down the road.
