Offers Racing In For Speedy Receiver

Top receivers are always at a premium in any recruiting year and this season is no different. That makes this in-state prospect from Huntsville one of the players to watch in the coming months as recruiting heats up around the South.

Huntsville, Ala.--In a year in which top-flight wide receivers are at a premium in the South, Quindarius Carr has a chance to be one of the best before all is said and done.

A speedster to go along with his 6-2, 175 frame, Carr has gotten offers from top programs all over the country and recently added a new team from the Rocky Mountains and says that he's just enjoying the process at the moment.

"Last night I picked up an offer from the University of Alabama so that was exciting," Carr says. "The offers I have right now are Auburn, Alabama, South Carolina, Troy and Marshall. I also just picked up an offer from the University of Colorado.

"Right now all of them are standing out to me because they are all great schools," he adds. "I really haven't thought about them much because I haven't taken visits or checked out the campuses.

"I have been to Alabama's campus so far. That was nice. I loved the atmosphere and the coaches and the football tradition there. It was nice to see that."

Having already been to Tuscaloosa for a game last season, Carr says he plans to check out as many schools as possible this summer. That includes a trip to Auburn on June 15 for a football camp. He says that he's looking forward to seeing what the Tiger program is all about when he visits the Plains.

"Right now I know they have wonderful coaches down there," Carr says. "I really like Coach Greg Knox. He's talked to me and my family and treated us well. I'm planning on taking a visit down there so I can check out the campus and meet the coaches."

A two-year starter at receiver along with fellow standout receiver A.J. Walker, Carr had a very productive junior campaign last season for Huntsville High. Using his 4.5 speed in the 40-yard dash, Carr caught 26 passes for 426 yards and seven touchdowns. Despite his physical abilities, Carr says that his strengths as a player come from his work ethic and dedication to the game.

"My strengths are reading coverages and running precise, crisp routes," Carr says. "They are also catching the ball and blocking because I believe blocking is something you should concentrate on in your game. I'm working on getting better at being a receiver, blocking, catching and running routes. I need to get better at everything."

Currently sporting a 2.8 GPA, Carr says that he plans to take the ACT for the first time this week before heading to summer camps. He will camp at Ole Miss, Memphis and Georgia in addition to both Auburn and Alabama.
