Carrier was one of the top performers at the Gophers’ camp during the first weekend of June. He looks the part of a Big Ten linebacker, checking in at 6’2” and 200 lbs. His film is chock full of highlights that showcase his strength and physicality. At camp, Carrier turned heads with his twitch and athleticism. He has all of the physical attributes that defensive coordinator Joe Rossi looks for in a linebacker. We’ll see how Carrier continues to grow and develop over the next two seasons.
