Carpenter was a two-time all-conference performer at Richards. He had 49 catches for 928 yards and 14 touchdowns during his senior season. He also ran 19 times for 183 yards, and on special teams he blocked two field goals. Carpenter will be joined in Vermillion by teammate Dylan Jiles.
Glenn's take: “We identified Tacari as a game-changing receiver from the get go. He is the real deal. He is one of the top receivers to come out of the state of Illinois and he can factor into our return game as well.”
