2015 OL Impressed By Auburn Atmosphere

Talented 2015 offensive lineman Tyler Carr talks about his trip to Auburn for A-Day.

Gadsden, Ala.—A talented 2015 offensive lineman already with an offer from Vanderbilt, big Tyler Carr from Southside High made a trip to Auburn on Saturday to see the Tigers in the annual A-Day Game at Jordan-Hare Stadium. A frequent visitor to the Plains this spring, the 6-5, 295-pounder says he got a great feel for the program as part of a near capacity crowd to see Gus Malzahn's first spring game as head coach of the Tigers.

"It was very impressive," Carr tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "When you have 83,000 and set a record it has to be going in the right direction or at least everyone is buying into it. I was very impressed by that and what I saw on the field. I like how they got after it. There were some good licks laid out there. I'm excited for what they've done and real interested to see what a real game is going to hold."

Very familiar with Auburn because his dad has season tickets for the Tigers' games, Carr made two trips this spring to get a better feel for the new coaching staff and in particular offensive line coach J.B. Grimes. That continued on Saturday as Carr says he got another opportunity to see Grimes and the development of Auburn's offensive line.

Still waiting on an offer from Auburn, Carr says he feels like it could be coming sometime soon. This spring could be a big one for the big lineman as teams will get a chance to see him on the field.

"Coach Grimes is showing a lot of interest," Carr says. "They have wanted to get more film on the offensive side of the ball before they pull the trigger. They are really interested so I'm just trying to keep it up and get better."

Hoping to earn more offers heading into his junior season at Southside, Carr says that he'll try to make as many visits and camp trips as possible between now and opening night. Hoping to see several SEC schools in June and July, Carr notes that he's just hoping to show what he's got and let the chips fall after that.

"I'm just trying to get ready for camps right now," Carr says. "As for visits whoever calls and invites me then I guess I'll be there. As for camps I'll probably be at Georgia, Alabama, Vanderbilt, and Auburn. I also may to try to squeeze in a Tennessee or Ole Miss."
