Wide Receiver Keeping Options Open

An in-state receiver prospect discusses football recruiting.

Huntsville, Ala.--Although a lot of prospects have already committed to colleges even though their senior football seasons haven't started, one of the more heavily recruited in-state prospects is in no hurry to make a decision.

Huntsville High wide receiver Quindarius Carr says, "I don't know when I am going to make a decision on a college."

As a junior, the 6-2, 175-pounder caught 26 passes for 426 yards and seven touchdowns. He is hoping to put up bigger numbers as a senior.

"We should have a good team this year," says Carr, who hopes his team can have success in the state playoffs this year. "We should be strong on offense."

A player who received an early offer from Auburn, he notes the Tigers are a college he is considering along with Alabama and South Carolina, his early leaders. He also has offers from Southern Miss, Troy, Purdue, Colorado and Louisville and is considering all of his offers, he says.

Carr visited the AU campus in July the day of a one-day prospect camp to get a chance to talk to the AU coaching staff even though he didn't work out at the event.

"It was good experience and a nice campus and everything," he notes. "The camp was overwhelming. I didn't expect that many people there." Nearly 500 high school players attended the one-day camp.

As he prepares for his senior season, Carr says the best part of his game is his blocking, route running and the ability to read coverages.

A player scheduled to be a three-year starter, he and teammate A.J. Walker, who is also a receiver, will likely attract college coaches to Huntsville High games this fall. "Everything is going good with recruiting," Carr says. "It is a bit stressful, but I think everything will be all right. I am interested in majoring in criminology. I am not an honor student, but I am a good student."

In addition to football, he competes on the Huntsville High track team. "My fastest time in the 100 meters is a 10.7," he says. "In the 200 I have run 22-something."
