SEC school is about to have another Carta-Samuels

By the time Austyn Carta-Samuels is through at Vanderbilt, it looks like current Commodore head coach James Franklin will have to get used to seeing another Carta-Samuels on his roster for 2014.

That's because the younger brother to the Wyoming quarterback transfer K.J Carta-Samuels has committed to Vanderbilt, which was so far his first and only offer.

K.J (photo) has been very active this off-season with getting himself prepared to take over for Travis McHugh at state powerhouse Bellarmine Prep in San Jose. The younger Carta-Samuels did show off what he's capable of doing against elite competition back in May.

Carta-Samuels guided his 7-on-7 squad Pro Sport to the Passing Down Best-of-the-West state title during Memorial Day weekend. Using the same roll out talent and arm that made his older brother highly-sought by mid-major schools, K.J claimed the Most Valuable Player award in the tournament.

The way I see it, the older brother looks more faster than K.J Carta-Samuels. Yet, the younger brother will probably admit that too. K.J though has a good edge on him in pocket awareness and making his reads. He also showed that he won't lock in on just one wide receiver, he spread the ball around very frequently the last time I saw him. He also showed off a tremendous young cannon when going deep.

Its not often you get a California quarterback committing to SEC country. It's also very rare when that quarterback happens to be an incoming junior, with little to no varsity playing experience. But maybe Vanderbilt seems to like the Carta-Samuels name, and the much taller 6-foot-4, 207 pound K.J should be one of the more highly-touted quarterback prospects for the 2014 class.
