Former Navarre running back Michael Carter has been named one of the top 10 running backs in the country heading into the 2017 season.
The Raiders’ all-time leading rusher will be a freshman at North Carolina this fall and is the only first-year player on the list released by Scouting Insiders. He ranks 10th on the list.
Saquon Barkley (Penn State), Derrius Guice (LSU), Trayveon Williams (Texas A&M), Myles Gaskin (Washington), Mark Walton (Miami), Kyle Hicks (TCU), Chris Evans (Michigan) and Ronald Jones II (USC) are also in the top 10.
Carter rushed for 2,536 yards and 41 touchdowns to set school records in both categories and helping the Raiders reach the state semifinals for the second time in school history.
