Carter’s head coach at Newberry, Ed Johnson, gave some insight into his star defender and what makes him so special. "The first thing that pops out about Jarquez is his explosiveness,” Johnson said. "He is such a sudden athlete and gets off the line with so much force and power. His explosiveness is some of the best in the country. He is great with his hands, plays with a high motor and has a great football IQ. Jarquez really brings everything to the table you would want.

"From sophomore to junior year, he grew a couple inches of height and put on around 10 to 15 pounds of weight,” he continued. "It was good weight as well. He works hard and is really reaping the benefits of that hard work. He gets double teamed every Friday, and sometimes triple teamed. Jarquez has shown that he can be durable and be a consistent force.”
