Wide Receiver Picks Tigers Over Tide

One of Alabama's top wide receiver prospects gave Auburn a verbal commitment Saturday.

Huntsville, Ala.--Looking for help at the wide receiver position the Auburn Tigers got just what the doctor ordered on Saturday when Huntsville High wide receiver Quindarius Carr called the coaching staff and made a commitment after Auburn's win over Arkansas State.

One of the top receivers in Alabama this season, Carr has been a standout this season in helping Huntsville to a 6-4 mark and a berth in the state playoffs beginning this week. Carr says that in the end his decision came down to Auburn and Alabama and that proved to be an easy choice when everything was factored into the equation.

"It just feels more like home to me," Carr tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "They've been honest with me since day one and they've always been there for me and listen to me. They will call and make sure everything is okay. The tradition they have is so good. It's just somewhere I see myself playing and a good fit for me."

While he wasn't able to make the trip to the game on Saturday, Carr has been in Auburn several times this season. One of those was for the Florida game just a few weeks ago when the Tigers defeated the number two Gators. He says that trip as much as anything influenced his decision in the end.

"The atmosphere was crazy," Carr says. "You could see the difference between the two schools, Auburn and Alabama. Auburn was more excited and into the game. Alabama was more laid back. The environment all together was overwhelming. I couldn't believe it. It's just somewhere I want to be. It's real SEC football."

A 6-2, 175-pounder that has a personal-best time of 4.48 seconds in 40-yard dash, Carr has had a very good senior season with 37 catches for 520 yards and three touchdowns while sharing the ball with fellow receiver A.J. Walker. This week they travel to Hueytown for a game Thursday night in the first week of the playoffs.

Carr is the 18th public verbal commitment for the Tigers and fills a position of need for the Tigers with seniors Courtney Taylor and Lee Guess gone after this season.
