Carr was back on campus

Alabama has hosted in-state standout Tyler Carr for games, camps and plenty of other visits, but Saturday's junior day trip was a bit different for the four-star offensive lineman. Not only did he get a lot of individual time with select coaches, but he had a personalized experience after that point.

Tyler Carr is among the junior football prospects most familiar with the University of Alabama. He's been to several games, camps and junior day events like the one held on Saturday by Nick Saban and company.

The four-star Gadsden (Ala.) Southside standout offensive lineman made it back to Tuscaloosa over the weekend, but this visit was slightly different than all of the others.

"It was amazing man, I had a great time," he said. "I got to spend a lot of time with Coach [Mario] Cristobal and [Bobby] Williams. They said that I fit that tackle type that they are looking for. That's what they are short on right now, and that I am one of their priorities.

"They told me that I really fit that mold that they're looking for."

Carr, an offensive guard projection by Scout.com as the No. 12 prospect at the position in the entire class of 2015, says tackle has been the most recent talk from the Crimson Tide staff.

Outside of the time with Cristobal and Williams, the 6-foot-5, 316-pounder took another tour of the Tuscaloosa campus. However, it was personalized.

"They let me just kind of get my own tour and see the campus," he said. "They showed me more of the college life outside of just the study hall and football complex.

"It was just another perspective."

Carr was also offered by Miami over the weekend, shortly after returning home from the junior day event.

"They seem like they have a good coaching staff and good players," he said. "I may go down there for an official visit."

After another successful trip to Alabama, coming off of trips to Auburn and before more spring visits, Carr maintains no favorites at this time though he's previously admitted that the two in-state SEC schools, as well as Georgia, continue to recruit him the hardest.

Still, the top junior is looking to make his decision sometime after his senior football season begins this coming fall. Carr has no set commitment date pointed out just yet.
