Four-star Carr recaps 'amazing' visit

Tyler Carr is currently pegged as the top junior offensive lineman in the state of Alabama, and he took in the nation's top team in action this weekend along with his family. He called it an "awesome" trip.

Tyler Carr has only visited one school more than once this season, and that's the University of Alabama.

Though indicating he still doesn't have a leader for his commitment and eventual signature, the Crimson Tide's chances to land in-state four-star talent weren't decreased on Saturday as he was in town to see UA dismantle Arkansas, 52-0.

"It was amazing," he said of his time in town. "I got to spent some time with Coach [Nick] Saban and Coach [Mario] Cristobal, and then they came out and demolished Arkansas."

The two staff members have been the primary recruiters for Carr, out of Gadsden (Ala.) Southside High School, and he learned news of his scholarship offer's status on this day.

"Coach Saban was telling me about how the week went and Coach Cristobal was telling me that he wants to coach me one day and that he is ready for me to commit whenever," he said. "It was great. It was something special to hear it from the number one team in the nation."

During the game, it was the Kuandijo brothers along the offensive line that impressed the No. 16 offensive guard prospect in America's junior class.

"The brothers, there is no way I can spell their last names, but they are both dominant!" he said laughing.

Carr also noticed that the Alabama fans had a different way of taking in this contest, which was a second straight 52-0 drubbing of the Razorbacks.

"Well, they had a lot of fans there in the first two quarters," he said. "And after it was 28 to nothing, they started to go ahead and celebrate outside of the stadium."

Carr traveled to Tuscaloosa with his mom and brother this time around, and each had similar feelings for the program and the day.

"My mother really loved it and my brother was just trying to take it all in," he said. "It was her first time for a game, but she visited the school with me back in the spring."

Saban's pitch changes some when mom is around, the 6-foot-5, 315-pounder says.

"He talked more from an education standpoint with her," Carr said. "like tutors and study halls. Things like that."

The early four-star has no visit plans scheduled going forward. He plays both ways for an undefeated Southside High, coming off of a big win over Etowah (Ala.) on Friday night.
